Basic Man and Basic Woman are subscription boxes that delivers a new set of basic essentials right to your door on a monthly basis.
Each shipment will include 3 items — a high-quality shirt (t-shirts for men, tanks/crop tops/t-shirts for women), a pair of underwear (performance boxer briefs for men, bikini undies for women), and socks (calf-length, ankle, or no-show). All Basic Man/Woman products (and even the packaging) are made from sustainable fabrics and materials, including recycled water bottles. Plus, they each have an indicator that says “recycle when this fades” so you’ll always know when it’s time to replace each piece. Size options range from S to 2XL.

Let’s see what’s in my November 2020 Basic Man and Basic Woman package (both were sent together)!
Both subscriptions (Man and Woman) were shipped in a black polymailer bag with the Basic Man logo in white.
There were 6 items in all — 3 for Basic Man and 3 for Basic Woman.
I’ll start with Basic Man…
Cabernet Crew Shirt Cotton
First up was this solid maroon/”cabernet” t-shirt with a flat lay crew neck collar. It’s made of a 60% combed cotton/40% recycled polyester blend that makes it perfect as both an undershirt and everyday tee. As mentioned earlier, it features a tagless heat transfer label that slowly fades each time its laundered to let you know when it’s time to be replaced/recycled. We received this tee in solid black last month and my husband was very happy with the fit. 🙂
Black Performance Boxer Brief
Most boxer-briefs made from cotton or polyester tend to attract bacteria, don’t absorb sweat well, and smell. (Ew.) To combat those issues, Basic Man uses bamboo viscose fabric with spandex for cool comfort and stretch — and less funk. Their boxers also include 92% REPREVE® recycled polyester in 2 mesh zones for stay-dry comfort and extra breathability. Like the t-shirt above, these also feature a fading label that lets you know when it’s time to swap them out for a fresh pair.
Ribbed White Socks
Sock time! This ribbed pair has some vintage vibes goin’ on with its thick black, white and
red cabernet stripes at the top/cuff. They’re mid-calf length and are constructed of an 80% combed cotton, 17% REPREVE® recycled polyester, and 3% elastic blend. These are the perfect casual/everyday sock. 🙂
Okay, onto Basic Woman!
Grey Tank Top
After getting a crop top in last month’s Basic Woman package, I was very happy to see this comfy heather grey tank in November’s shipment. 😉 It’s constructed of 95% bamboo viscose fabric and 5% spandex, which means it’s both moisture-wicking and antimicrobial. I tend to get quite hot/sweaty when I sleep, so this will be perfect for wearing to bed.
Grey Bikini Bottoms
Basic Woman describes their undies as “simple and cute”, which is pretty accurate. There’s no frills here — just simple, comfy undies with a “little extra butt coverage” for a perfect fit. They’re made of 89% nylon/11% elastane and are both seamless & tagless. No panty lines!
Grey and White and Tan Socks
These socks are super soft and feature a neutral color scheme of white, gray, and tan. They’re made of a bamboo/polyester/rubber/spandex blend and have flat seams for added comfort. I can never have too many pairs of socks!
Once again, my husband and I were very impressed with our comfy essentials from Basic Man/Woman. We appreciate that all of the pieces were made with durable, yet comfortable materials and that both subscriptions are reasonably priced. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 25% on your first month with coupon code “ROSEBUD25“!
