    Coming to a street near you

    Posties will soon be stepping out in a new uniform.

    Your postie will start to look sleeker, more comfortable and hopefully more visible over the next few weeks as New Zealand Post introduces a new uniform.

    The new design would be safer, more comfortable and better suited to the physical requirements of delivering mail, said Postal Services chief executive Peter Fenton.

    It is the first uniform redesign in nine years for the country's 2300 posties and 535 Rural Post contractors.

    The uniforms will be made of "poly-wicking" fabrics to move moisture away from the body, keeping the wearers warmer and drier.

    They also feature ultra-violet protection and bright fluoro-yellow panels to ensure posties can be easily seen.

    More here.

    Try to bloom wherever you are planted.

    The new uniform will be great to spot your postie coming down the street with your mail. You could see him/her about a mile away.

    I'm all for safety on the road.

    Is that why you never took a driving test?

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    I have to admit that is quite probable.

    Our posties have had their new gear for a few weeks now. The long sleeved tops look really good. In fact, so good that I'm considering a career change!

    That'd definitely be worth a few pics in the photo section
