I know everyone has fun with the LA comments, but the reason a couple of these LA guys are finding great stuff is that they're literally doing this full-time. I live in LA. The scene is pretty good, but not as good, in my experience, as SF or NY to name two. But it's a big region, and a couple of guys are spending eight hours a day a couple days a week driving from store to store.

I'm a big fan of a 16" square. With the exception of a few heavier-weight fabrics, and our vintage kimono fabrics, all our PTO squares are that size. The kimono fabrics are actually woven at about 13" wide, so those are smaller for the reason. The occasional heavier fabric we just want to avoid a fat pocket.
I actually just ordered two shirt jackets from Carl (Shirtmaven). My mom (who's an antiques dealer and buys and sells a lot of textiles) bought some gorgeous old checked wool flannel. Sort of like a smaller version of a tablecloth check, one in cream and red and one in cream and blue. I thought about something like this Pendleton: but ending up going with something like this, but with a less sporty, more upright collar: Like DieWorkwear mentioned, I find this kind...
Well, there are other considerations.
Did you contact them, or just go straight to creating a forum account, then searching for a two-year-old thread to add some vitriol to?
I've seen them at Heimie's in Minneapolis and at Wingtip in SF.
