Duru's Custom Shirts and Suits
WLS-TV anchor Ron Magers, former Chicago Bulls center and coach Bill Cartwright, former Exelon Corporation CEO John Rowe, Chicago Cubs legend Ernie Banks, and author and attorney Scott Turow often find themselves reaching for the same suit. They do not share a closet, but the staff at Duru’s Custom Shirts and Suits claims to have tailored threads for each of them. The shop's clothiers, in fact, have draped Egyptian cotton and lightweight wool across the shoulders of numerous notable Chicagoans over the course of more than four decades in business. With the hushed sounds of tailor’s chalk on fabric and humming machinery in the background, the workers also alter wardrobes when patrons are accepting an award or trying to clothe the little guy on their award.
