WHO WE ARE
In 1993, we launched Mark’s Commercial as Imagewear in Canada
as a direct sales arm of Mark’s to service corporate Canada.
We’ve now become Canada’s largest supplier of industrial workwear and footwear, corporate clothing, safety wear and gear, and promo accessories.
Workwear with your company’s name on it
helps you build a connected team.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, we can customize products at our super centres
in Calgary and Mississauga. We provide embroidery, embossing or direct-image printing for just about any branding or embellishment requirement.
Running out of what you need just isn’t an option.
Mark’s supply chain—via Canadian Tire through its third-party overseas consolidator and network of third-party carrier partners—manages the movement of goods from offshore suppliers to our two distribution super centres. Inbound offshore ocean containers are processed through Vancouver then shipped using third-party rail and transportation partners for timely delivery to our distribution centres.

PUT YOUR LOGO ON JUST ABOUT ANYTHING
Help your team stand out with your company’s logo on their workwear.
A unique application in which polyurethane is added during the finishing and processing stages to boot leather to increase durability and weather resistance. A finishing spray applied to the boot after construction helps extend the life of the footwear and protect against soil, rain and oils.
QUAD COMFORT® TRACTION SYSTEM
A unique midsole pillar design compresses with body weight, offering increased support and cushioning. Various polyurethane densities absorb weight and disperse pressure while walking. The resulting rebounding effect means more comfort and less fatigue.
QUAD COMFORT® PILLAR TECHNOLOGY
This innovative footwear technology addresses shock absorption, weight distribution, cushioning and pressure displacement. These four components are integrated from the insole to the bottom of the outsole.
A lightweight water-resistant, breathable barrier applied to the outer surface of footwear lining keeps feet dry and comfortable. Sealed critical seams enhance water protection.
Technology applied to the footwear outsole.
A unique tread pattern combined with advanced compounds increases the friction coefficient on the outsole to help prevent slips and falls on wet or greasy surfaces.
This innovative tread design combines greater surface contact in the forefoot and heel strike zone with specialized antislip outsole compounds (engineered silicon carbide crystal-impregnated rubber) to increase friction and help reduce slip.
TARANTULA ANTISLIP™ On Ice
This lightweight, hypo-allergenic insulation provides warmth without bulk and wicks moisture away from the body to help regulate body temperature. T-MAX® insulation uses high-performance fibres designed to keep the body warm, dry and comfortable. Machine washable, with excellent loft retention.
Garments or socks with superior heat retention and temperature regulation technology, created with a technical blend of fibres or specialized dyes designed to increase heat retention from the body when it’s cool or increase heat dissipation when it’s warm, for greater comfort and wicking or insulation.
This technology offers the comfort and cushioning of QUAD COMFORT® without
the additional weight.
QUAD COMFORT® LITE
Uses a molded toe cap applied to the outer work boot to increase the life of the toe area. Extremely durable and quite flexible, DURATOE helps ensure work boot toes can withstand hard wear.
This safety toe technology provides all the protection of steel toecaps without any of the discomfort. Because the steel toe is on the outside of the upper, there’s more space, greater comfort and greater distance from cold steel for the foot inside the boot.
X-TOE® EXTERNAL SAFETY TOE
A multi-layer textile composite made from high-tenacity yarn, this woven fabric is treated to achieve varying levels of hardness while maintaining flexibility. Sewn directly onto the upper, this tough textile insole protects 100%
of the bottom of the foot (unlike a steel plate), offering strength and protection with flexibility.
Fabric is modified at a molecular level to repel liquid spills so they’ll instantly bead and wipe off without leaving a mark or moisture. WRINKLE RESISTANT technology makes garments ready to wear out of the dryer and throughout the day.
This is a safe, invisible antimicrobial treatment applied to footwear and garments to inhibit bacterial growth that leads to odour, spoilage, stains, fungi, mould and mildew.
This durable treatment enhances the release
of stains from fabric during home laundering without affecting the garment’s look or feel, which helps the clothing look new for longer.
SOIL & STAIN RELEASE
SOIL & STAIN PROTECTION
A water-resistant, breathable fabric treatment that provides protection from light rain and snow. Critical garment seams are sealed to enhance water protection.
A waterproof barrier is laminated on the inside of the fabric and treated with a durable water repellant (DWR) on the outer layer. HD3 provides an impenetrable barrier while letting body-generated moisture escape.
A water-repellant, breathable fabric treatment that provides protection and comfort without weight in everyday situations. Maintains natural breathability while repelling water.
FLEXTECH® technology that is applied
to women’s apparel to guarantee denim maintains stretch recovery and expands
minimally for up to 30 washings.
NO SAG DENIM
Garments created using superior technology that provides improved heat retention and body temperature regulation. A technical blend of fibres or specialized dyes helps increase heat dissipation in warm weather or retain heat in cooler environments.
Hidden stretch fibres run vertically through the waist to provide excellent fit and stretch in every direction. This technology maintains comfort and fit after repeated wash and wear.
A lightweight, hypo-allergenic insulation that provides warmth without bulk and wicks moisture away from the body to help regulate body temperature, T-MAX insulation uses
high-performance fibres engineered to keep
the body warm, dry and comfortable. Machine washable, with excellent loft retention.
Engineered garments that use advanced performance technology in stretch fibres and fabric construction. FLEXTECH® fabrics must meet specific stretch and recovery standards for comfort and shape retention throughout the lifetime of their intended garments.
A tightly woven flex-fibre weave that combines the durability of traditional cotton duck (canvas) with resilient stretch fibres, providing maximum mobility and comfort throughout stress areas.
Flame-resistant (FR) material helps provide protection, limits damage and provides crucial seconds to get away from thermal hazards
such as a flash fire or an electrical arc. An FR garment doesn’t burn—or burns briefly then self extinguishes—while insulating the body against the heat source.

More than 4 million Canadian workers are affected by job-related injury or illness. In many workplaces, injuries can be prevented or minimized with the proper protective workwear and footwear or equipment. Here are some on-site safety measures you can follow:
Use compliant hard hats to prevent head injuries
Provide CSA-approved and anti-slip footwear to provide traction that prevents falls
Have work gloves on hand that protect against cuts, chemicals, heat or cold
Protect workers’ eyes with properly fitting safety glasses and face shields
Provide hi-vis clothing so workers and visitors are clearly visible on roads or among large machines and equipment
Keep workers near fire or electricity safe with flame-resistant (FR) wear and gear
All industries care about safety. But safety clothing and gear require special consideration.
Whether your industry is involved in energy, transportation, construction, warehousing or office work,
you can access and order the industry-approved and field-tested workwear and safety gear you need
to protect your workforce. If we don’t already carry it, we’ll source it for you.
Protect your greatest asset—your workforce.
