This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

There is a NEW, IMPROVED VERSION of this fix in another thread!
There's also 12 recolors there.

- NEW VERSION : nicer shoes, pink pants -> brown, purple pants -> blue,
(you still have pink and purple pants available, as recolors), alpha fix

- OLD VERSION : alpha fix only, no shoe or color changes


This is a default replacement of the textures for Maxis childrens' baggy pants.
I changed the alpha so pants texture wouldn't show up on shirts, see image below.
Left the UV map as it was, so all your recolors will continue to work, though you'll want to change their alpha.
Technically, the pants textures still gets mapped to the bottom of the shirt, but its transparent there now, so you just see the shirt, yay!
Big thanks to Menaceman44 for pointing out this this problem to me.

If you have OFB, then you have the shirt pictured below.
You may well want my OFB shirt neck seam fix.
