WEST LOOP — Chicago’s best spot to spy the country’s hottest athletes might not be a pricey restaurant or trendy club — it may be a custom suit shop.
At ESQ Clothing in the West Loop, owner Ge Wang’s roster of clients reads like a fantasy football dream team. The shop counts Chicago Bears star running back Matt Forte, Bears tight end Martellus Bennett and Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles as clients.
It’s been a busy season for Wang. In June, he dressed first round pick Jerian Grant for the NBA draft, landing the now Knick at the top of three best dressed lists. In August, he opened ESQ Clothing’s first showroom, at 555 W. Jackson Blvd., next to Lou Mitchell’s.
