Thank you so much for these. Male shorts are an area that's really lacking.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I've been waiting for something like this for years. I never cared for the shorts and flip-flops pairing in H&M Stuff.

Thank you for those shorts. Is there a chance to get them for (young) adult/elder?

I haven't seen this mesh converted for adults and elders.

These are awesome, thank you! I HATE the Maxis shin-length shorts. They're so sloppy Dx I love the skater style sneaker, too, very hip. Thanks for the links to separate tops. I downloaded some of those as well. Happy Simming :D

I need these. I just realised that the only shorts my teen males had were the ones with socks and sandals. I don't suppose you'd consider doing a default replacement of those shorts with these too? They have socks and sandals; it's an insult. XD

Thanks!

I can do that . What six recolours you want to be used?
(I would also recommend this default replacement by Nichellerj (which I'm currently using)).

Thanks heaps! Hmm, looking at the Maxis originals they look like blue and two dirty looking colours that hover between tan, grey and white, so I guess those recolours and maybe the black and brown.

Thanks for the sockless link, but tbh I actually like your versions with the sneakers instead of sandals better. XD

I love these!!! Quick question though. Do I need to put all three of these into my game, or can I pick and choose?
