Fleece in Amsterdam

Just trying to lighten up the board today after all the sour threads. But seriously I do have a stupid question. One of my favorite souvenirs is to buy fleece wear such as jackets, hoodies and sweatshirts. Can you find these types of things easily in Amsterdam in November? I'm just trying to figure how to pack. If I can find these warm items there then I won't have to pack any. Thanks!

I think these are amongst the most common of souvenirs.

I don't know if fleece specifically, but you will see hoodies and such in just about every souvenir shop which are everywhere in the center. There's an outdoor store on the Kalverstraat as well.

Be sure to get a fuzzy wool hat that says AMSTERDAM on it. They seem to be very popular.

Yay, you guys made my day. Thanks for the response!

I'm open to hearing other popular souvenirs. Love the hat idea. Great for skiing here in Colorado! I was reading something earlier about Zaanse mustard. What's that about?

What about a sheep pelt?

Have seen some of those at the organic bio saturdaymarket on the Nieuwmarkt.

To avoid any possible confusion, the hat you need to buy is one of these: http://goo.gl/cgM3F

It is an unmissable element of the authentic Amsterdam experience, best worn in combination with a bright red renta-a-bike.
