Resident touts Billy's Closet, a new resale store for men's clothing in downtown Wheaton.
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Many new shops have opened in Wheaton, Illinois including an exclusive men and boys’ clothing consignment shop. Jamie Jones began her business when her father passed away and she was left helping her mother decide what to do with her father’s high end clothing. It seemed a shame to just give it away, so she began Billy’s Closet so that other men could have the opportunity to acquire some of the pieces at discount prices.

Billy's Closet, 117 Main Street in downtown Wheaton, buys and sells high-end consignment clothing and accessories for men.
When Jamie Jones's father passed away last October, she had a garage full of his Armani suits, Hugo Boss pants, Christian Dior neckties, Ralph Lauren shirts and shoes that cost up to $500. She didn't want to give away the expensive, high-end wardrobe, but after multiple consignment shops rejected her items because they had little interest in men's clothes, she thought, "Why not open up a consignment shop just for men?" Jones opened Billy's Closet at 117 Main Street in downtown Wheaton about three weeks ago. With the help of a retail grant from the City of Wheaton, she has been able to transform the 850-square-foot space that was formerly Impressions Boutique.
