Craig wears an outfit by British menswear brand Racing Green and shows us that classic style that you can wear on any city break

Prague has been on my wish list for years! I wanted to go at Christmas, I wanted it to snow, and I wanted the streets to be lined with Christmas markets and twinkle with lights in the magical way that only thousands of LED bulbs and some imagination and willingness to believe can conjure.
Unfortunately I booked our city break a little too early and while still stunning in its architecture and majesty, Prague was just on the brink of its Christmas explosion and we missed it.

Even when visiting foreign climes I like to make an effort to look good and show people that not every Englishman dresses like he is about to attend a football game or tend to the garden. We are not all beer swilling yobs and while I appreciate that Prague does see it’s fair share of loud mouthed louts on stag weekends, I hope that I made an impression and changed some perceptions among those I interacted with.

As soon as I saw this traditional dog tooth blazer and matching waistcoat I had to have it. While, yes, it might be good to have matching trousers so that you have a full three piece suit, it’s also nice to be forced to team the jacket and waistcoat with other things, such at these jeans.

I really like the contrast when wearing jeans by adding a tie and smart long sleeved shirt. It’s a juxtaposition that I feel really works. It shows a person that is professional and considered, but who also knows how to keep things relaxed.

So, while we missed prague in all of its Christmassy glory we had an incredible time and I cannot recommend it enough. If you do go check out the Residence 7 Angels which is where we stayed. The rooms are adequate (some are better than others) for the price, but even if you do not stay there please, please, please try the venison and dine at their beautiful restaurant. Great food, stunning surroundings and very reasonable prices.

Prague, I miss you already but you are still on my list as I didn’t get to quite see you at that special time of year when the magic really comes alive!
