Kiwi men love to 'dress badly'

Kiwi women are unattractive and New Zealand men can't dress to save themselves, according to a British fashion blogger who visited our shores at Christmas.

"I think if I lived there I would go off my rocker," wrote Andrew Williams on Men's Flair this week.

"Firstly, I didn't see one attractive woman - other than the one I took with me. Secondly, and most importantly, Kiwi men are utterly unrepentant in their desire to dress badly. Indeed, they seem to revel in it."

Williams, a 33-year-old Londoner who works as a researcher for a Conservative MP, came to New Zealand with his Kiwi girlfriend.

It was his second trip here and he visited his girlfriend's family in Hamilton and went to the Coromandel and Wellington. He also "wandered around Parnell and Newmarket" in Auckland.

Williams also said that Kiwi men showed a "complete lack of flair, care, quality and above all effort" and viewed any kind of interest in clothing as "effeminate".
