When discussing fashion with reporters from the Wichita Eagle, J.V. Johnston maintained that every man ought to have a good suit. That's why he stocks his 13,000-square-foot store with a sweeping variety of designer duds, from dapper blue jackets to handsome silk ties and sleek leather shoes. After a recent expansion, J.V. even broadened the shop's selection to include women's clothing from revered brands such as Olsen Europe and Elliott Lauren.
The 98-year-old establishment also specializes in clothing for big and tall men from a variety of designers. A team of expert tailors stands at the helm, customizing shirts and suits to accommodate unique features such as large shoulders, long legs, or vestigial tentacles.
