Meet The Founder

Chris Kabeya grew up in Montreal with a fascination for men's grooming. He quickly realized that the connection between a person and a product is often just as important as the product itself.
It's his appreciation for fine and sophisticated modern brands that led him to found Gentlemen 1ST back in 2015. Incorporating both past and present he wanted to bring under one roof the most respected brands that deliver maximum results.
