Mixed comments from the public (but everyone loves the belt, go figure). It's starting to grow on me. Also I think some of the hmm (larger) women who were worried about how it would look have calmed down. It doesn't actually look to bad on anyone (you just have to be careful what you were undeneath).

I don't know how it feels wearing it, but having had a few trips to the airport in the last week or so, I think it actually looks a lot better in real than on the photos. and yes the styling is not what people were expecting (as of avantgarde) I find them timeless.

I think the staff all look fantastic and will start wearing it with their own individual aplomb once they get used to the various components.
The colours and cut are distinct and will soon be distincly NZ once the new designs are more recognised around the world. Also, Merino moves so well that the crew look quite graceful in their new strides.

More comfortable than the old one..it def fits more like a business suit than the old one. The trousers do come up quite high in the crotch which isn't that comfortable when you first sit down, but if you adjust your trousers down a little bit then its fine! Heard comments that the men look a bit too casual without the tie... especially from premium customers, but most like the design on the shirts and the uniform overall. (it does seem to collect more dust/marks than the old one however )
Female f/a's seemed quite shy to wear the hat the first day but after that most of them wear it now thru the terminal (it comes off onboard of course). I personally think that the female staff look excellent with the silk scarf done up around their neck. As for the pilots uniform, it does make it stand out from QF, EK, SQ etc etc by having silver rather than gold coloured bands...it does look more modern, although I think the stripes should be thicker as they don't stand out as much compared to other airlines... ie an NZ captains jacket ends up looking like another airlines 1st officers jacket from a distance.
All in all I like it and most others seem to too!
