When you are taking care of someone with a special need, the last thing you have time to do is think about yourself, much less your clothes.  That said, we understand you don’t have time to shop at the mall or your favorite clothier.  There are a lot of wonderful online solutions – and we are bringing our new series “A Caregiver’s Guide to Online Shopping” to ease that burden and provide you with quick, low cost, high quality solutions online.   We hope this helps you dress better, while still having time to care for your loved one.   Heck, you can even shop in the middle of the night in your PJs if you want.   Just don’t let us see it!

If there is one endeavor we have found challenging in the world of men’s shopping, it is this: FINDING GOOD BASICS. I’m talking about t-shirts, underwear, socks, joggers, shorts. There is no shortage of options, and that’s precisely the problem. Among those available options, there is good, bad, and worse. You can’t find what you need at the department store, so you go to your favorite “big box” retailer, but you never quite get what you need. And it doesn’t stop there. When you finally find what you need, it’s too expensive. But at that point you’ve spent so many hours searching. Now what?

Meet our friends from Basic/Outfitters. Duo Michael and Laura Dweck came up with the idea for Basic after they got married. Michael was forced to trim his wardrobe of any clothing that wasn’t useful. After the purge, he set out to restock his drawers with basic clothing items, and that’s when he ran into issues. Pieces were too expensive, they were too hard to find, the quality was poor. At Basic, Michael and Laura have worked hard to create clothing with three goals in mind: fit, affordability, and quality.

I personally buy all my boxer briefs from Basic because they deliver in those three areas. The fit is fantastic. They’re built for sport and leisure; each pair lasts for months.  Best of all, I just have to get out my laptop, go to their site and a few clicks later I am done!

One feature that makes Basic unique: Create-a-Drawer. It allows you to refill all your basics in a bundle. That means you can restock multiple pairs of socks, underwear, t-shirts, and joggers for $60 (a $120 value). Plus, there’s free shipping on all drawers.

So let Basic to save you time and money, whether you are buying for yourself, or the person you are caring for.
