Greg Brownless makes best dressed list

Tauranga Mayor Greg Brownless has been included on a 2017 best-dressed list. File photo.

Tauranga's mayor has been named as one of the country's best-dressed men in a list compiled by the New Zealand Women's Weekly.

Greg Brownless joins the likes of 1 NEWS presenter Simon Dallow and The Project host Jesse Mulligan on the list for 2017.

Greg told SunLive it was ‘highly embarrassing' to find himself mentioned.

“I knew nothing about it – I think the photo they used was taken before I was mayor, and somehow they must have got a hold of it. Initially when staff told me I thought it was a Photoshop windup.”

He says his friends would tell anyone he's not interested in fashion whatsoever.

“I have two suits, three pairs of shoes, enough shirts to last a week, and a collection of $2 ties,” he laughs.

“I've had fake watches in the past, but they've only lasted a couple years. Now I just have a $100 Citizen watch.”

Around home, he says he dresses in what he feels comfortable wearing, and certainly doesn't wear a suit when feeding the chickens.

“I only wear a suit when I have to – but that's most days now.”

That doesn't seem to improve his decisions.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
