Bespoke and custom tailor Esq clothing has launched their e-commerce site. The launch comes just after the company opened their first brick-and-mortar store in Chicago at 555 West Jackson Blvd. in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood.
Esq offers custom suits, shirts, and shoes, in addition to ready-to-wear targeted toward athletic types. Their clients include around 100 people from both the National Basketball Association and the National Football League.
Matt Forte, formerly of the Chicago Bears and now with the New York Jets, has been spotted wearing clothes by the brand. The band Fall Out Boy has also been spotted wearing outfits from Esq.

Ge Wang, founder, president, and creative director of Esq Clothing, hopes that the site will provide a convenient shopping experience for their current customer base and expand the brand's reach far beyond Chicago.
“Esq Clothing defines the importance and the luxury of a properly fitting suit,” Wang said to WWD. “We are honored and humbled to expand our success into an e-commerce experience. Rolling out our ready-to-wear collection allows men all over to attain the luxury of a properly fitting suit.”
Items currently offered on the site include a two-button, notch lapel navy suit for 799 dollars, a double-breasted windowpane sport coat for 649 dollars, a floral tie for 169 dollars, and a twill dress shirt for 159 dollars.
Esq Clothing recently made headlines in Sports Illustrated for outfitting the NBA's top draft picks. Jakob Poeltl, who was picked by the Toronto Raptors, wore one of the brand's suits.
