Northern NJ Bespoke/custom Suits/shirts without going into NYC.

Sorry for alt post, but been a longtime reader, about to invest in my first real suit. As a result of injuries during service I require and want custom shirts/suit to begin my wardrobe. I don't wanna travel into NYC anytime I want something so I am trying to keep it to Northern NJ area. My goal is a nice navy suit to start. My field is medicine so I don't need to be too avant garde.

I've looked into Gambert Custom (http://www.gambertshirts.com/) in Newark & Millburn. Not bad (shirts I got were $150+, suits are $1200+). They say they can make anything you want and there is no house style but the stuff I've seen can be a bit fashion forward. Did a search and only old threads (before 2010) mention it.

Another place a friend mentioned is DeCarlos Bespoke in Jersey City. The website (http://decarlosbespoke.com/) is even more bare-bones than Gambert's and I have not found any discussion of it on SF. Found a handful of Yelp reviews but am looking for informed opinions from the sartorially minded.

The post is going on so to cut it here I want to know if anyone knows of anything good/bad/indifferent regarding these or any other similar services in my area, Northern NJ.
