Where to buy made-to-measure clothing?

I've decided to go down the made-to-measure road and buy some shirts (and, perhaps suits) that fit really well. Which online made-to-measure shop is best?

With the poverty of grad school behind me, I need to buy some great fitting shirts and suits. I've had relatively little luck in retail stores and want to try the made-to-measure route. Unfortunately, there are tons of places to buy made-to-measure shirts and just as many reviews slamming or praising each of them. If you've had a good (or bad) experience with online made-to-measure, I'd love to hear where you recommend I go/stay away from.
If it matters, I'm a relatively tall (6'1") thin guy who is primarily interested in conservative fabric patterns. I'm hoping to buy shirts (and suits) that fit really well, but I don't want anything that even suggests "cutting edge" fashion.
Bonus question: If you have recommendations for where to get really great tailor measurements done near the Durham/Chapel Hill area, I'd love to hear them.
