ESQ Celebrates a Decade of Success With New Store on N. LaSalle


Chicago, IL – In just ten years, Ge Wang has turned his passion for men’s suiting into a thriving luxury brand known as ESQ. This year, he unveiled his latest accomplishment, a half-million-dollar new store at 180 N. LaSalle, a space that not only showcases the company’s premium clothing designs but also provides a luxurious atmosphere where customers can feel at home.

ESQ has come a long way since Wang’s early days of custom tailoring suits out of his apartment in 2013. His dedication to quality craftsmanship and customer service has earned him a reputation as one of Chicago’s most sought-after custom suit designers.

Wang’s success comes from his ability to tailor suits to a wide range of body types and his talent for dressing professional athletes. Through word-of-mouth referrals and his commitment to excellence, Wang has built a loyal customer base of clients who appreciate the art of dressing well.

“I have always believed that a man should be comfortable in his own skin and his own clothes,” says Wang. “That’s why I take the time to get to know each of my clients and understand their unique style and fit preferences. I want them to feel confident and look their best every time they put on one of my suits.”

ESQ’s new store at 180 N. LaSalle is a testament to Wang’s success and his commitment to providing his customers with the best experience possible. The space is designed to be an oasis in the heart of the city, with a relaxed atmosphere and a knowledgeable staff that can guide customers through the custom tailoring process.

The store’s design features a mix of modern and classic elements, with clean lines and warm wood finishes. The space includes a bar where customers can enjoy a drink while they browse, as well as a lounge area with comfortable seating where they can relax while their suit is being tailored.

“I wanted the store to feel like a home away from home for my customers,” says Wang. “A place where they can come in, hang out, and enjoy the experience of getting a custom suit made just for them.”

The new store is also equipped with the latest technology, including an iPad-based measurement system that ensures a precise fit. This technology is a game-changer for custom tailoring, as it allows Wang and his team to take precise measurements in a matter of minutes.

ESQ’s success has not gone unnoticed, and Wang has been recognized for his contributions to the industry. In 2018, he was awarded the Asian American Business Leadership Award by the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce, and he has been featured in publications such as GQ, Forbes, and the Chicago Tribune.

“I am honored to have received recognition for my work, but the real reward is seeing the confidence that my suits bring to my clients,” says Wang. “When someone feels good in their own skin and their own clothes, they radiate that confidence out into the world. That’s what makes my job so fulfilling.”

As Wang looks back on his eight years in business, he is grateful for the support of his loyal customers and the city of Chicago. He is excited to continue growing ESQ and providing his clients with the best custom tailoring experience possible.
