I just recently picked up a custom Bare Trilam HD drysuit for less than the prices you quoted. For the price I paid, it included the custom suit with a thigh pocket installed, two sets of underwear, a carrying bag for the suit, 7mm drysuit hood with zipper, 7mm gloves, and an inflator hose. Check out Divetank.com and call Richard... he's great to deal with.
I just dived the suit last week and it was great!
My Stock TLS350 cost 1300 and even came with twin jet fins for that price. Look around more. If you are willing to buy on the internet then you can get a custom suit for under 2000 but buying from a LDS will usually be close to what you were quoted, maybe a bit lower from what I have seen. Of course, going custom means you don't want to screw around with the measuring and going with a LDS that sells a lot of custom suits is probably a better choice. If you send the wrong numbers then you are stuck with the suit. Good luck!
