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.
When some of my Sims were at university, I would see other students wandering around wearing this outfit. I thought that it would look pretty cute on my little Sim boys, so I converted it for them... and then I added six more colours, just because I wanted to push my Downloads folder to the breaking point.

The outfits come in a total of nine colours. The three original colours require the University EP to work; I've marked them with the University icon. The rest of the colours don't require any EPs or SPs.





This outfit uses a new, child-sized mesh that has a working fat morph (see the blond kid with cornrows, above). The outfit with the pink shorts is unisex, but all the other outfits are for boys only.

Enjoy!

The white glasses are a mesh by tamo, but the "recolour" is a cool error my game made.

Hello, these are really nice and I'd like to download them. Before I do could you please explain this to me? " The three original colours require the University EP to work; I've marked them with the University icon. The rest of the colours don't require any EPs or SPs." I see that in other clothing downloads and I really don't understand it. (I don't have Uni installed.)

To make the file sizes smaller for those three outfits, I used the repository technique. That just means that the recolour file has no texture actually contained in the file; the game will take the texture directly from the game files instead. The textures in question came from the University EP, so if you don't have University installed, they won't show up.

But you can still install and use the other six colours without University.

Hi. I noticed that there seems to be a problem with this outfit, as shown in the attached pictures. The bone assignments on the back are different from the adult outfit that it's based on and are giving children humped backs when they sit down.
