This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

One simple white 3-piece suit for your southern gentlesim.

Full Body - Everyday/Formal - No mesh needed

EDIT: I've updated this suit using Numenor's Legacy BodyShop and it should now work for all games. Please test and report back how it works! Huge thanks to Numenor and everyone in this thread for finding a solution to the Pets BS problem.

(The hair on my model is a slight recolour of Janna's "Hollywood Executive Hair".)

Thanks! I've been wondering why there's no default white suit (I am a Southerner, after all!). The shadows around the fabric folds keep it from getting washed out and making it look like the Schmoo, like in other white suits I've found. And I love the subtle recolor of one of my favorite hair meshes. Another fabulous Fansee free moment! Nicely done.

I think --- no --- I *know* I'm in love. I've been looking for a white suit for Rick (he's the only one of my boys who can wear white) for a long time now. I love the soft white color of this! Thanks for sharing it. :D

The shading really makes this. There are several men in suits like this in my family album. Nice to see some classic regional clothing. My mom used to call these "ice cream suits."

Hey guys, it seems there may be a compatibility issue that causes BodyShop items made with the Pets EP installed to not work correctly in games without the Pets EP. This outfit was made with Pets installed. Has anyone without the Pets EP tested it in game yet? Did it work? Feedback would be appreciated. Sorry for any problems you may have experienced.

And thanks again for all the nice comments. You guys are so sweet!

Darn, it didn't show up for me, either. I have all the core expansions installed except Pets, and no Stuff packs. I'm guessing people are going to have to start making two versions or else those of us waiting for Pets fixes are out of luck with a lot of new clothing and accessories. Sigh.

Thank you so much for the feedback, guys. I've marked this download as requiring Pets now. Hopefully someone will be able to come up with a fix... it's ridiculous that a simple base-game mesh recolour like this requires the EP!

There seems to be a semi-fix posted on page 2 of the thread discussing this problem.

Look for Dr. Pixel's post and the one following from Numenor. Hope it helps.

Wow Numenor works fast. Maxis should be paying him for fixing their blunders.
I had a similar problem with it showing up as a skin.
Thanks for the update. Much appreciated. I'll post if it fixed it or not. You're still the best.

Is pets worth getting yet? I think I've been put off by all the mishaps.
