I really liked this box. The t-shirt is so incredibly soft. That was definitely my favorite item. The socks from this shipment aren't really my style, but I'll probably just give them to a friend. All in all, a great box and I'm really impressed with the quality of the shirt.
Everything is pretty great with the tiny exception of a small hole on one of the socks, it's small but stuck out like a sore thumb straight from the packaging. They are not unwearable, but durability will be an issue after wearing a few times.
Otherwise, the quality of all items feels premium, very soft to the touch and will help make a great outfit.
Shipping was a bit long, too. I received an email asking me to review the items days before I had even received them.
I received the wrong size in both items shipped and have yet to hear back from customer support after it's been more than 3 full business days.
Literally sent the wrong size 3 boxes in a row and ignored 5 emails, spread out within 2 months, to ask for a correction. Sent this basic 4 XL black t-shirts despite us saying XL was too big. They’re taking “basic” way too far - I mean, if this was a black T-shirt subscription box then cool, but they definitely pretend to offer more than black t-shirts. Oh, and they definitely pretend to offer more than one size so not sure why we got 4 identical black XL shirts in a row. Worst part is customer service straight up ignores you. Would never recommend this box to anyone, ever.
I ordered this as a gift for my husband. He loves the boxer briefs and the soft feel of the t-shirts. The socks run a little small/tight for him. My one complaint is regarding the curation of the shirts. He has received duplicate colors two separate times out of the four months he's been subscribed. I know the subscription box is called "Basic" but he'd prefer not to have two plain black t-shirts two months in a row along with two of the exact same blue shirts two months in a row as well. The fitted black shirt also shrunk and is now small for him, even after the company sent a larger size than requested (XL for a L subscription). So once this month's box arrives, he'll have two too-small black t-shirts.
I preordered 3 months and only received 1. Tried to contact customer service several times with no response. After almost 2 months from the initial send I got an email today they were sending another shipment and the shirt is the one they already sent.
Just cancelled my subscription after about 3 years. Really liked this at the start, and looked forward to getting my monthly box. Over the past year and half the shirts have changed to be stretchy-er and ill-fitting, they used to be well constructed. Also the shirts used to vary between crew neck, v neck and fitted. The shirts, underwear, and socks used to kind of match and be a theme. Recently, it seems that they just cycle through the same 6 shirts and match it up with whatever leftover stock in underwear and socks they have laying around the warehouse. Seems like they are just depleting stock before going out of business. I tried to reach out multiple times to ask if this lack of inspiration was due to the pandemic and supply/shipping issues, but never got a response - which is too bad because previously their customer service was great - instant responses and dealt with issues right away. Too bad because I really wanted to keep going with this, but I don't feel like giving my money on autopilot to a company that doesn't seem to care.
I love this deal. The products are great and the color combos are perfect with each other
Very comfortable clothes. Just wish that for the winter months the shirts were long sleeved.
I look forward every month to receiving this package. They are all so soft, smooth, and comfortable. Not always the colors I would go out and buy myself, but they all have worked with the clothes I have just fine. I like the fun socks also.
i think the products are ok however the customer service is very bad.
Hello Amy - we're sorry you are disappointed with our customer service team. As discussed via email, you had 2 open subscriptions which we understand were for 2 different people but were under the same name. When you canceled one, you mistakingly canceled the wrong one, which is frustrating. We let you know right away when we noticed this and asked that you correct this and gave you a step-by-step tutorial on how to adjust the sizing back to what you need, but this was never done. When your subscription renewed, it renewed with the sizing that was left in the system since you never updated it, and this is why the wrong size was shipped. As discussed, if you would like to return the...
Im a blue collar guy. I work in a factory and support my family. My wife teaches at a local beauty school and does the same. When my girl told me she ordered this for me I was like “that’s cute, Thanks!” When it arrived and I actually wore the garments I was blown away. They are sooo comfortable. I just wear the tee around the house ( I would just destroy it at work and I like wearing it to bed) but the socks and underwear are so comfortable. Literally just washing them as soon as I can to wear them again. Worth the money. I’m not much for fashion( Lotta metal and punk tees)The small things matter though, like being comfortable at your job. A+
We look forward to your basics journey continuing to progress ;) stay safe and have a great day!
Absolutely loved it it’s a good simple box for men love it! It would be awesome if it came with some basketball shorts or sweatpants as well then it would be an entire outfit and THE PERFECT BOX EVER!! Lol
I got this for my dad for his birthday and he loves it! It also gives my mom a reason to make him get rid of his old ratty t-shirts.
Basic man is perfect. I have a husband that lives in T-shirt’s. But never has a nice one to wear out. I actually got it for him for Father’s Day and paid for a full year. He received his first box and he was totally please with it.
My son really like this subscription box.
Recieved my first order in a reasonable length of time. Very happy with first order. Need to adust sizing a little bit , but thats cause i have an awkwardly sized teen. Tall and skinny! My son really liked everything. Thought socks were "cool" shirt and boxers were soft and comfortable. We will definitely continue subscribing.
My fiance loved his 1st package! He's pretty particular and into expensive name brands. He didn't like the name of the package, "Basic Man", but got over it as soon as he felt the materials. He's guy crushing pretty hard on the colors and fabric.
I had considerable stress over the shipping as I did not receive my first box (last month's) until after I had already paid for the second month (this months) which was disappointing because it was supposed to have arrived before Father's day which is why I purchased it.
However, now that it has arrived, it is great quality, and my husband LOVES it, so I will definitely be keeping on with my subscription. It is super soft as advertised and good quality dye/material. Overall very pleased with the items that arrived.
We apologize again for these pandemic-related delays and are glad to know that your products were ultimately well received :) stay safe and stay basic!
Great quality of fabric. My husband is very happy ! Thank you so much!
Silky soft shorts, a high quality t-shirt and good lookin' socks. It was a nice surprise. We'll be keeping this box coming for sure! Thanks Basic MAN!!
I was very impressed by the quality of all of the items. I’m looking forward to my next box.
This box is fantastic! Usually a pair of boxer briefs alone cost around $12-$15, so this is a steal! The clothes are fashionable and comfortable. Certainly a subscription I will keep!
I hope future package don't bring crazy colors, but this one, he loved it.
This makes a great stocking stuffer gift. I gave my hubby his early. He likes everything so much that he asked for a box every month.
