How are ESQ suits constructed?

The ESQ suit is designed and constructed by hand. Once your measurements are taken, a master tailor will draw your individual pattern. From there, our team will hand cut and sew your pattern with custom canvassing from Italy designed specifically for the type of garment, whether it be a 7 layer canvas for a traditional English jacket, or a lightweight 3 layer canvas in our Neapolitan jacket. Each stitch you’ll see is carefully stitched by hand.

How do I take care of my ESQ garments?

Please dry clean all ESQ garment when needed. This usually is every 5-8 wears per suit, try not to dry clean too often as chemicals will wear down natural wool, cotton and silk.
