Ge founded ESQ in 2012 as a practicing attorney. Having tried several custom clothiers in Chicago and beyond, Ge was simply unimpressed by the quality of garments in the marketplace. Ge has since visited countless fabric mills and tailoring facilities in search of the perfect garment. After finding the latter unsuccessful, Ge invested in his own team in crafting the perfect handmade suit, which in turn is the ESQ product you see today. Renowned for dressing celebrities and athletes alike, Ge specializes in dressing those from his former profession, and is deeply tied in to appropriateness for each and every setting. After seeing clients in his apartment for the first three years, Ge opened ESQ's first flagship location in the West Loop in 2015.
Ge holds a JD from DePaul University and a BA from the University of Notre Dame.
