Himark Martin?

Just got an e-mail that "Himark Martin" will be in town soon. I am not sure how I got on this list, but I figured I would see if anyone here had heard of them. Strikes me as one of the travelling Indian tailors from HK, with the corresponding hit or miss tailoring and questionable quality.

To be clear, I am not looking for recommendations on tailors, just curious if anyone has heard of this particular outfit.

So for anyone interested, I had a suit made via Arvi of Himark Martin while he was visiting Ottawa. I am thrilled with it.

For a 150TC italian wool, 3pc suit with surgeon's cuffs, 1000 even seems like a decent deal for MTM. I have seen pictures of Maxwell's suits online and they do not compare, in my opinion.

They also do shirts but I have not had any experience with them...yet. Maxwell's is cheaper on this front. Himark does batches of 7, whereas Maxwell's can do them in 3's.

Would love to see fit pics.
