Celebrating 60 YearsQuality, Community & Service since 1964

When Ken Helfman opened his store in Garland, Texas in 1964 he set out to have an impact on his community. When men feel good about how they look, they influence people and do great things.

Through the success of his store, Ken was able to give back even more with an annual gift drive for the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children and through the Bill Hunt Scholarship.

We’re so proud of the legacy he created and the personal relationships that flourish today as a result. Take a walk down memory lane as we revisit some of the special moments of Ken’s Man’s Shop’s history.


The employees, many of which came from Garland high school, laid the foundation
for decades of style & service. And let’s not forget the customers! The Ken’s team loved
all their customers equally, but the most recognizable were from the Dallas Cowboys.


Ken was known for his sharp wit and loved advertising.
The store won multiple awards for his clever and sometimes tongue-in-cheek ads.

In The News

Ken was interviewed many times and loved talking about the store.
Seeing his name in print was a thrill, even when it was mispelled!

Who was Bill Hunt?

A student of Garland High School, Bill was Ken’s first employee. Bill was an extremely hard worker and a delight to be around. His unexpected passing was very tough on the entire community.

To honor his memory, Ken started the Bill Hunt Scholarship Fund. Each year we award the scholarship to a deserving senior at Garland High in Bill’s honor.

Through this scholarship and all its recipients, Bill’s tremendous legacy lives on.
