Basic Man is a clothing subscription 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 t-shirt, a pair of performance boxer briefs, and socks (calf-length, ankle, or no-show). All Basic Man 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 May 2021 Basic Man package!
Everything was shipped in a black poly mailer bag with the Basic Man logo in white & blue.
The contents! — This month’s package featured a basic tee, boxer briefs, and matching socks.
Heather Coral Silk Cotton Crew Shirt
May’s crew neck t-shirt featured a nice coral color that’s great for the summer season. As always, it consists of a 60% combed cotton/40% recycled polyester blend that makes it perfect as both an undershirt and everyday tee. Its tag-less heat transfer label slowly fades each time its laundered to let you know when it’s time to be replaced/recycled.
Deep Ultramarine Performance Boxer Brief
My husband has grown to love these boxer briefs and is always happy to add another pair to his rotation. As pointed out in previous reviews, typical boxer-briefs made from cotton or polyester tend to attract bacteria, don’t absorb sweat well, and tend to get pretty stinky. 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.
Deep Ultramarine No Show Socks
I believe these are the first “no show” socks we’ve received in a Basic Man shipment. (We’ve seen quite a few from Basic Woman.) These coordinate perfectly with the boxers above with their deep ultramarine shade of blue. They also feature compression arch support & a hand-linked toe for added comfort. They sit below the ankle and are constructed of an 80% combed cotton, 12% REPREVE® recycled polyester, 5% polyester, and 3% spandex blend.
