In 1954, the first Jack and Bill's store was opened in Canton, Illinois by Jack Walker and Bill Ritchey. Steve Hardin, the current store's owner, began working for Jack and Bill at the age of 14. After school, Steve, along with Jack and Bill, opened the Mattoon store and Steve has been managing it ever since. In 1977, Steve and his wife Carolyn bought out the other partners to gain sole ownership, but kept the name because of its reputation for fine quality men's clothing. Steve is constantly learning and perfecting his skills as a tailor and owner to deliver top brands and unique menswear to Central Illinois.

Our mission at Jack and Bill's is simple.

We deliver top quality menswear and immediate alteration service on the clothes that are purchased in our store. We will get it done when you need it. That is how we continue to grow while other retail business have fallen by the wayside.
