This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
For all the wizened wizards, medieval magistrates, magnificent monks, classy cross-dressers and graceful genderfluids out there, here's the long skirt for men. It comes in all the colors and patterns of the female skirt, with 6 dark plain colors added.

*edit* It seems something went wrong in the approval process and the actual file was lost along the way. It is there now. Sorry about the inconvenience!

It seemed strange to me that no such thing was available for download anywhere- how I have looked! After all, how hard could it be to make? As I found out, quite hard. But I think I succeeded in the end.

This is a new mesh that fits the male form very tightly, which allows it to be combined with all the available tops in the game. It can be found under bottoms->skirts.



There is a bit of clipping that only occurs with some tight shirts in Sims with very large bellies, but other that that, it works great. It works with tucked shirts, tight shirts, and no shirts. Possibilities are endless!

If you want to re-use this mesh I'm fine with it, just give me a mention and a link back, and of course show me what you've made!

Kilts are high on my list, but doing a good mesh for a kilt with a nice sporran and variety of tartan textures, well I have to admit, I don't have the skills to do that right now. I hope somebody with more experience than me picks this up!

I needed something like this for a story about a transgender. Are you thinking of making anymore female to male clothing?

I don't have this version of the game, but I was struck so much how lovely these turned out. Beautiful and elegant. Work like this makes me regret, just a little, not spending the money. ;-)

No worries! I was more than willing to wait and it didn't even take a day! I'm going to love it and look forward to whatever you'll make next.

(I just think it's cute.)

I have tested the download and it does work. Do you have WinRAR to open the .rar file?

Got to try it out last night and I positively adore them (thank you for such a wide variety of color choices as well). The Sims 4 really needed this bit of content, thank you so much for your quality contribution!

This one encouraged me to learn all about how to get and install cc and how to be safe and smart doing it. I guess it broke my cc and mod cherry. It was one of my first downloads, and I still use it all the time. The extra swatches you added are so good that I prefer it to the base game option. I just wanted to thank you again for the work you put into this, because I still smile fondly when I happen across it online and I am still grateful to be able to use it in gameplay. This was the beginning of my long and harrowing journey to make my gameplay less binary and less hetero-normative and will always be cherished because it was always one of the few options I had in the beginning. Thank you so much, even years later, for this lovely piece. It still looks great, colors are rocking and subtle at the same time, and my game has never been the same since. Thanks with a big hug!
