About Us

The Joliet Clothing Mart was founded in 1905 as a uniform trouser manufacturing company for the men and women of the United States Army. The sole proprietorship was sold to my Grandfather, Gerald Polykandriotis in June 1967 and my Father and Grandfather incorporated as JCM Uniforms in 1997. Now, more than 100 years later, we are still located in downtown Joliet. Nick and Jerry Polykandriotis are 2nd and 3rd generation owners and operators of JCM Uniforms, Inc.

Members of the National Association of Uniform Manufacturer's and Distributors along with the National Association of Police Equipment Dealers.

We specialize in uniform customization from start to finish. We produce our own line of uniform trousers, ballistic vest covers and can alter just about any garment. We customize Police and Fire Department uniforms and also handle many local business needs as well. Give us a shot at your embroidery or screen print business. You won't be dissappointed with the quality of our work.

Alterations, Embroidery and Heat Sealing

Alterations We offer "while-you-wait" hemming and patch sewing services. If you buy your uniform pants from us we hem them for free. We also sew on one free patch if you purchase your uniform shirts from us. State of the Art Equipment Our shop uses the most modern equipment available for screen printing, heat sealing and embroidery. We have over $60,000 invested in artwork software alone to produce the best quality logos in embroidery and screen printing applications.

Embroidery We can produce a sample of your embroidered design in 24 hours to a week depending on complexity. We can give same day quotes for projects and have pricing available for any size order. Price breaks begin at 50+ pieces. Screen Printing / Heat Sealing We have great pricing on single color designs. However, we can produce up to 20 colors for your logo. Whatever the complexity we can find the right answer for your company, sports team, or fun shirts that you want to make.
