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.
While in-game checking out guy's tops again, I noticed the Supernatural Jacket with the cardigan, and wondered why I don't use it more. Then I looked at the arms. D'oh! The sleeves are lopsided! Makes my OCD flare right up! And then there was the issue of the cardigan--the original, while nice, wasn't particularly versatile thanks to those horizontal ribs. Then I saw the gray patches on the back--WTF were those and why couldn't they be recolored? (They turned out to be stencils. ... seriously?!)

So ... yeah. I did a bit of retexturing work and came up with something that I think is a lot more in line with clothes your average dude would probably wear. Original jacket is on the left, my version is on the right.



Top is an edit of a Supernatural jacket, but it is base game compatible and you will not need the EP to use it. This jacket WILL NOT replace the Supernatural jacket, so you can use both in your game. You will need to be patched to at least 1.63.

Top has three channels and is available in everyday, formal, and outerwear. It is available for random Sims.

Polycounts are 4046 for LOD1, 2002for LOD2, and 996 for LOD3. All morphs (except pregnancy) are included.

Enjoy!

Polygon Counts:
4046 -- LOD1
2002 -- LOD2
996 -- LOD3

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is great; I use that top on some of my more "sophisticated" (read: classy) males, but always hated the damned black bits on the back of the jacket. Now they can look MUCH better! Thank you for this!

I had the same issues with this top! There's a teen version too, you know. Would you ever consider doing that one too? It's always hard to dress my teens well.

Need a love button but I will suffice with the thank you button. It irritated me to no end. I really liked the jacket too. Will use this one more though. LOL

Thanks for the comments and love, folks

Echoweaver, this top (among other clothes I've done) is one I do need to do for teenagers. I'll get to it in a few weeks.

I really hate when EA adds ugly stencils to what would otherwise be gorgeous, frequently used clothing. Thank you so much for fixing this and sharing with your fellow players.
