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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I really like these pullover tops that came with Kitchen & Bath Stuff, but never use them with those shorts attached. So I lopped off the shorts and added some (slightly altered) Nightlife jeans instead. And some sweatpants. Yay!

- The ones with jeans are Everyday/Outerwear

- The ones with sweatpants are Everyday/Outerwear/Athletic (They're in the "jeans" rar.... I just forgot about 'em when naming the files. Sorry for any confusion.)

- All can be worn by Young Adults too

- New MESH with working fat morph. Make sure you download the mesh!

Please Note: Your game's Sim/Object Detail setting must be on high to view this mesh correctly. And to prevent overall fugliness in the rest of your game.

All files compressed with jfade's Compressorizer to reduce filesize. Thanks jfade!

You can also download the jeans and sweatpants as separate "untucked" pants. So if you set those as your Everyday outfit and these as your Outerwear, it'll look like your sim just threw on a jacket... and a turtleneck.

May 8, 2009 Update: Oops, the shoe sounds were wrong. So I fixed them. Why didn't anyone report that? Please redownload the recolours and overwrite the old files to get the correct shoe sounds.

Additional Credits: Special thanks to elpemmy for suggesting I lower the neckline of the shirts. I, um, didn't actually do that for these textures 'cause in the end I thought the turtlenecks looked nicer... but thanks to her suggestion the mesh is more versatile and can be used for slightly lower necked recolours. So thanks, elpemmy!

PS: My sims had a little altercation during this photoshoot. Please ignore their grumpiness. They like these outfits just fine.... it's each other they can't stand.

I feel silly for asking this, but where are the textures for the sweatpants oufits? The zip looks like it only contains jeans.

Ohh! Sorry. Yeah, the jeans and sweatpants outfits are all in that same file. I just named it poorly. Will add a note to the first post.

Thanks for all the nice comments, guys.

Cool, I never use shorts much anyway and shorts with a long sleeved sweater looks very off to me. Names don't pose a problem, I always check the texture files with the CleanInstaller and remove the ones I don't want.

I had the same idea! But I was too lazy! Great you have done it! Well done! I loved the top but hated that it were mixed with short trousers. I don't take request. I have 2 children and few freetime. Use my creations as you wish. You don't have to ask.

It's been long since I don't come to MTS2. I'm surprised that you're still creating stuff xD
Anyway.. I've always liked your creations cause because you make simplicity with quality, and that's just great. =)
#22 Old 19th Dec 2008 at 7:30 PM
These are fab...dunno how I missed them.. You know what would be the icing on the cake? These as default for the K&B ones .

Thanks for these tho, love them!!! :D
