Family-Owned & Operated Since 2014: A Small Business with a Big Heart

Say goodbye to big corporate nonsense. Welcome to our family-owned business, operating since 2014, where the heart is the biggest part of our operation.

Our Philosophy

From day one, our concept was this - make it simple, make it work, and make it smell good. We manufacture everything in small batches locally, using high-quality ingredients and paying close attention to every detail.

Meet the Founder

Kam Mitri

Kam Mitri, a master barber with over 20,000 haircuts under his belt, started his barbering journey in 2010. His humble beginnings have shaped his values, which he holds onto even today. As you read this, he’s likely crafting another perfect haircut.

From Passion Project to Pioneering Brand

Kam’s fascination with 1950s hairstyling and traditional barbering sparked a passion project. He began concocting his own pomades in his mother’s kitchen, becoming a pioneer in the “home brew” community. His love for his hometown, Toronto, Canada, and his desire to pay homage to the 1950s era led to the creation of his first pomade, Union. Named after Toronto’s Union Subway Station, built in 1954, it tells a unique Canadian story. Thus, 19Fifties was born, becoming Kam’s pride and joy.

Quality Above All

Recognizing the potential of his products, Kam collaborated with a small batch lab in Toronto. He spent countless hours researching to develop top-notch hair grooming goods using the cleanest ingredients. Every tin encapsulates our heart and soul. We hope you enjoy our goods as much as we enjoyed making them!

Paying Homage to Iconic Styles

There was a time when being well-groomed was a prerequisite for being a dapper gentleman. Iconic styles were born from influencers like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, and Ritchie Valens. We’re here to honour that history. Our products, designed for barbers and their clients, offer barber-grade quality that looks fantastic.
