Kloethe & Company (also known as Kloethe for Klothes) was a men's clothing store and tailoring shop in Hot Springs, Arkansas, that was established by John M. Kloethe (1870-1929). For at least part of the company's existence, Kloethe was in partnership with Victor G. Verneux (1870-1937).
Kloethe & Company was a vendor of the Chicago-based Kuh, Nathan, & Fischer Co.'s Sincerity Clothes line of men's clothing, and also produced custom suits, trousers, vests, and overcoats. The business was a sponsor of a Hot Springs African-American minor league baseball team, the Kloethe Reds, from 1910-1912.
