A city break in in Zaandam Amsterdam – Part One

Craig spends a few days in the Netherlands visiting Amsterdam and saying in the Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Zaandam Hotel.


After getting bored with the usual two weeks on a sunbed in baking heat we decided it was time to get a bit more cultured and take some city breaks. With Budapest, Marrakesh, Reykjavik and Prague under our belts we decided it was time to visit Amsterdam.


I’ll cover the trip in two posts as I simply have too much to tell you in one post, and I’d hate to bore you!


We all know about the drug culture and the red light districts, and I am sure that these two things have resulted in some couples deciding to give Amsterdam a miss. All I will say about this is that it’s there if you want it, but it’s so easily avoided and while we didn’t go out of our way to make sure we didn’t engage with these pursuits, we didn’t see or here a single example of either. So be confident that if either of these things is offensive to you that it’s not what Amsterdam is all about.

My top three shirts by Canali

Craig shares details of his top three shirts from Italian clothing company Canali and how he’d wear them.

A great shirt is a staple item in every mans wardrobe and we’d be lost without them. Canali, are a luxury Italian brand who offer a wide range of high quality shirting and have been doing so for over 80 years, so they know what they’re talking about.

Still a family run business, they are serious about design and quality and still manufacture their clothing in Italy.

Today I want to share with you my top three shirts from Canali in this sponsored post, and show you how I’d style them with other items from their current range.

Craig joins the team at Bremont watches at the Henley Royal Regatta wearing clothing by Hackett London


The Henley Royal Regatta is an annual British event first held in 1839, and is attended by the Royal family, boating enthusiasts and anyone who appreciated a great British day out.


I was invited as a guest of Bremont watches who are the official timers of the races and a sponsor of the event. If you love your timepieces and respect a great British brand that creates stunningly engineered, award winning chronometers, take a look at their range.
