Basics, basics, basics. They might not seem like much, but they’re some of the most worn items of clothing we keep in our dressers. The underlying issue surrounding men’s basics? None of us ever want to buy them.
Men’s basics are sort of like the best shampoos, deodorants, toothpaste — what have you. They have a lifespan. Unlike that wacky, effervescent button-down you have hanging in your closet, you tend to wear basics more regularly than any other pair of clothing. There’s a solid chance you’ve thrown on one pair of jeans more times than once already this week. So much wear will eventually lead to tears, stains, rips and pilling after a few months or years of owning.
So, sadly, the best t-shirt in your dresser you wear every day? You’re going to need to replace it at some point. Same goes for your favorite boxer briefs.
Because men’s basics are annoying to buy, we figured we’d make it a little bit easier for you by finding some of the best deals on basics available for purchase through Amazon Prime. And don’t worry, we’re not going to list any brands you’ve never heard of either. Read on to discover all the best deals on men’s basics from Amazon and save up to 30% on favorites such as Levi’s, Calvin Klein and more.
1. Calvin Klein Cotton Stretch Multipack Crew Neck T-Shirts
SAVE ALMOST 40%
Need a couple of new tees in your wardrobe? We’re sure you do. Get ready to save almost 40% on this t-shirt multipack from Calvin Klein. Yes, that Calvin Klein. We couldn’t believe this deal either. Each pack contains one white, one grey and one black tee for a new collection of multi-seasonal basics you can wear solo or under other shirts.
2. Levi’s 505 Regular Fit Jeans
SAVE ALMOST 40%
Just like the deal above, you can save up to 40% right now on the world’s favorite pair of jeans through Amazon Prime. These puppies have a straight-leg construction that looks great on multiple figures and body types. The jeans sit at the waist and look stellar doing so. If you’ve ever owned a pair of Levi’s (which we’re sure you have), you’ll also know that these jeans are made to last. Not only that, but you can choose from a multitude of different colors as well.
3. Tommy Hilfiger Underwear 4-Pack Boxer Brief
SAVE OVER 30%
There’s no doubt in our minds that you need a couple of new pairs of underwear. Even if you just purchased some new underwear, you still need more. There is never enough. Thankfully, Tommy Hilfiger makes some of the most good-looking basic underwear packs on the market — and it’s currently on sale for over 30% off. These 100% cotton boxer briefs come in a set of four with two blacks, one red and one white pair to keep you looking (and feeling) fresh.
4. Crocs Duet Sport Clog
We’re allowed to consider Crocs one of the best basics for men on Amazon, right? Good, because we are. These multi-gender classic Crocs are perfect for whatever kind of day you have in store. They look great, will keep your feet comfy and come in a number of different sizes and colors. Speaking of sizes and colors, those will factor into how much you’ll be saving with these bad boys. Some sizes and colors will help you save more, while others won’t help you save as much. Check them out and see if your preferred color style and size combo will help you save some coin.
5. Calvin Klein Men’s Cotton Boxer Briefs
SAVE 12% NOW
Right now, the most recognizable men’s underwear in the world are on sale via Amazon Prime. If you love your Calvins, then this is the perfect chance to re-stock your underwear drawer. This 3-pack of stretch cotton boxer briefs are available at a discount for a little while longer. (They’re also available in white.)
6. UNIONBAY Survivor Belted Cargo Short
While some of us are pretty anti-cargo shorts in 2021, they still make for a well-constructed pair of leg-coverers to wear in the warmer months. These belted cargo shorts from UNIONBAY come with a number of pockets for holding anything you might need to have on hand throughout your day. They come in a massive range of colors and sizes, so if you consider yourself a huge fan after purchasing once, we suggest you go back for round two and snag the same pair in a different color.
7. adidas Men’s Superlite Low Cut Socks
SAVE ALMOST 20%
The same thing that goes for underwear also goes for socks. These low-cut socks are just what you need to replenish your sock drawer. They have an all-black construction to them that is made of primarily polyester and some spandex. Each pair is cushioned at the bottom and uses moisture-wicking yarns to keep your toesies dry.
8. Russell Athletic Basic Cotton Jersey Short
SAVE ALMOST 50%
The best basics are the kind you don’t have to think much about when throwing on, like these comfortable jersey shorts from Russell Athletic. These shorts make for the perfect buddy to bring with you to the gym, on a run or for lounging inside. They are a no-second-guess kind of short, simply put them on and you’re good to go.
9. Carhartt Men’s Knit Cuffed Beanie
We just really love this award-winning beanie from Carhartt. We’re not the only ones who love this hat, which has more than 111,000+ reviews on Amazon. Fall is right around the corner, so stock up on the classic Carhartt Watch beanie while you still can.
10. New Balance Men’s 608 V5 Casual Comfort Cross Trainers
SAVE 28% NOW
If you had told us 10 years ago that white New Balance sneakers would become the shoes to wear, we would have been pretty surprised. But with the rise in popularity of both white sneakers and chunky dad shoes, the New Balance 608 V5 is the perfect shoe for our times. Ultra-comfortable, supportive and stylish, they’re everything you could want in an everyday shoe. Best of all, they’re on sale right now for a limited time.
11. Under Armour Men’s Fleece Joggers
We know fleece and summer might not go together, but this discount is too good to pass up. Joggers are an absolutely essential item of clothing for every guy in 2021, and they’re perfect for both working out or simply lounging around the house. Plus, post-pandemic, many guys have started wearing these out in the world, and we support them. For a little while longer, you can save up to 44% on these top-rated Under Armour joggers for men.
