Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Louisiana: Pope’s Clothiers. Wade H. Pope opened his business in Shreveport in 1961. Originally a laundry and dry-cleaning destination, Pope gradually added menswear and transformed the business in to a full-service men’s shop. Pope’s Clothiers, now a second-generation family business, carries a wide range of menswear, including everyone’s favorite brands.
Shreveport is located in northwest Louisiana. The city, the third-largest in Louisiana, is the commercial capital of the Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas region. Shreveport has been a popular place for filming movies, such as The Guardian and The Great Debaters. The city has also been the birthplace of many notable figures, including Terry Bradshaw (4-time Super Bowl winner), Robert Parish (4-time NBA Champion), and Grammy award-winning country musicians Kix Brooks and Hank Williams, Jr.
