Metro Man & Metro Home

By Jared Shechtman

Jack Black takes a wonderfully unique approach to creating a full line of men’s products. Their approach is to address the very undefined needs of men, and they do it exceptionally well. Their product line is high quality, easy to use, has a solid scent without being either over powerful or too feminine, it even has names that might just make you chuckle when you’re reading them for the fifteenth time. Like calling their deodorant “Pit Boss.”

Jack Black, which prides itself on being “gentlemanly”, offers a line of cologne. The collection, aptly titled “The Well-Stocked Bar,” look like miniature versions of the private stock of top shelf liquor likely kept in a CEO’s corner office. Scents are drawn from Red Cedar, Wild Cypress, and Juniper creating a subtle masculine fragrance.

Shave In a Bag, is the ultimate in shaving sets. If you couldn’t find anything in the Cool Finds – Fathers Day Gift Guide Edition to buy for Dad, you should get this. Actually, if you did buy something from the gift guide, get this too! It’s flawlessly designed for real men. Presented in a black flannel bag, it comes with Face Buff, Beard Lube and Post Shave. When used together these products make for one the best shaves possible.
Price: $44.00

Jack Back also offers Black Diamond, a line of sun block creams and a spray to get that perfectly bronzed tan this summer. Also available is a full line of hair products, and select products for women.

While having nothing to do with the actor Jack Black of the movie High Fidelity, Jack Black grooming products is a personal favorite of such stars as Hugh Laurie, George Clooney and Matt Damon. I’m sure that Matt would say Jack Black is wicked ah-some!
