I found a barbershop in Bloomfield that still gives straight shaves. I haven't tried the shave, but did try the haircut and it was pretty good, although pricey at $21.
The name - Carmine's
Location: 1290 Broad St Bloomfield, NJ 07003 (973) 893-0300
This is very near the Brookdale Shop Rite, so gents, you can have SWMBO do the shopping while you get a shave and a haircut.
I also read a review in 201 Magazine about a place in Midland Park that is highly rated.

Best Barber Shop
Larry and Phil’s Barber Shop, Midland Park
Old-fashioned barbers to their core, Larry and Phil have a loyal customer base who enjoy a shave and a haircut from these two masters. Among the devotees is Robert Confrancisco of Wyckoff, who considers the shop’s “small-town appeal” a cut above in modern-day Bergen. “All the kids get a lollipop (or two). The barbers handle the small kids’ cuts with expertise. My haircuts have never been better,” says Confrancisco. “Walk in without an appointment, and a half-hour later, you come out with a great haircut. All the barbers are experts.”
They are at: 62 Godwin Avenue Midland Park, NJ 07432-1951 (201) 652-9535
Carmine's charges $20 for a straight shave and Larry & Phil's charges $17. If anyone has gone to these gentlemen for a shave, please let us know what you thought of it. I am sorely tempted to try one. Thanks.
