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.
Default replacement of emBodyDressShirtPants.
Lower waist, better pants, cleaned up textures.
I also recommend my *updated* shirt and pants replacements.

Brown shoes are actually darker than they look in this image.

I've always thought it looked stupid how the pants are too short above the feet. Thank you!

I love you for this! I never understood why Maxis thinks that all elder males not only wear trousers that are too short, but also pull them up to their armpits (or at least well above the waist). Thank you for giving our older gents back their dignity!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I am tired of never using those frumpy outfits. My elders start at 55 not 80! (and even my octogenarians are more fashion-savvy than those old outfits)

Perfect! I never understood having the pants pulled up so high. I mean, where do you put the gut if you get such a thing? Besides, it just isn't attractive and my older guys are young (at heart, at least). I also could never stand having the pants so high on the ankle.

Thank you so much!

YAY!! No more Wedgie Flood Pants!
Even old men need some style...not...poorly tailored pants, that need to removed with the jaws of life from where the sun dont shine.
Thank you so much!
