My wife cannot sleep because I snore. I think it is due to how my head is positioned on the pillow.

do you sleep on your side or back?

50/50 side/back but the snoring comes when I am on my back.

snoring on ur back is just how it is i sleep on my back and i snore, i would say go with out the pillow that helped me but you also sleep on your side. In other words your screwed unless you become either a 100% back sleeper or a 100% side sleeper.

I too was skeptical before I tried it. So don't knock it till you try it.

I don't have a strong feeling either way on mixing linen with winter fabrics. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. If I had more CBD shirts in linen I'd probably wear them in the "winter", but I live in southern California, so what do I know wink.gif

I have been wondering about what shirting options are best for mixing with linen suits and sport coats. Linen or linen/cotton shirting is obvious, but what are others? I've tried broadcloth, but it often looks too smooth and crisp. Oxford cloth works, but often looks too heavy. I like Royal Oxford with linen mixes that have some silk, but not on duller linen. I was thinking about pinpoint and end-on-end, but thought I'd ask what works well for the rest of you?

PS- I'm NOT looking to "mix it up" with a tartan flannel smile.gif

And no flipy-floppies.

Do you have sleep apnea? Because what you are describing definitely aligns with it.

Uh...I don't think so.

According to my wife, I snore, clench my teeth, breathe thru my mouth by "poh" sound. Lovely.

Thanks for posting all that @Coxsackie! It was really good to meet another SFer and get the lowdown on where to go for shopping (more of that today!)

I ended up going with a solid dugdale in blue (almost navy but a bit lighter) in an all year weight. It's being made up into a double breasted suit. I also got measured for a shirt - in very thin pale blue stripes. Joe helped with the selection.

All in all it's been a good experience and I am already looking forward to coming back for fittings!

Noodles, why don't you try out breathe right strips? I used them for a while due to my deviated septum and they worked great.

I want to double thumb Cox's post, but I heard that costs extra.

Sounds invasive.

I feel like this thread is noodles' autobiography.

I will try that. But I think the snoring comes from me relaxing too much and my fat throat just gets in the way of my breathing pathway.
