Information (Click for more details):
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.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is a complete revamp of my first piece of custom content, which I created when I realized that there were absolutely no clothes for female clergy. Anywhere. There are gorgeous clothes for nuns and even a tab-collar shirt for male priests, but none for the ordained (or preparing-to-be-ordained) ladies. This has to be corrected! Even if none of your Sims are feeling the call to ministry, you might need a priest for your wedding, or maybe you're looking for an unconventional costume for All Hallows' Eve.
The mesh is from the base game outfit labeled "afbodytweedjacket" for adults and "efbodytweedjacket" for elders. Since itís a Maxis mesh, it already includes a fat morph. The adult version works for young adults, also. The elder version is slaved to the adult textures, so you must install the matching adult recolor in order for the elder recolor to show up. In the pictures below, the grey-haired model is demonstrating the elder mesh and the shorter-haired blonde model is showing off the "fat" morph.
So that your female priests, pastors, preachers, ministers, and seminarians don't have to wear the same thing every day, I've done some recolors to give you a little variety.
There are 9 colors in all: the standard formal black (full outfit); the black shirt with red, green, and blue jackets; the black outfit with white and purple shirts; the original Maxis blue outfit, with both white and black shirts; and the original Maxis red outfit (previously available only for elders) with the white shirt. In all cases, the shoes have been replaced (with textures from another Maxis outfit) because I canít stand the originals.
These are all categorized under Casual, Formal, and Outerwear, so your officiant can show up in the right outfit for your winter wedding (try not to let her get too envious of the bridesmaids' gorgeous dresses).
About the design
Most of the special clothing worn by clergy is deeply symbolic. The tab-collar clergy shirt, however, is not. Basically, it is based on old-fashioned men's dress clothing. (I bet you didn't know that.)
Some clergy prefer to wear a white collar that encircles their entire neckóothers prefer a "tab" collar, which is a little piece of white plastic that you can insert into the collar of your shirt. (This is convenient because you can make a quick substitute with a folded-up piece of white paper in a pinch. Not that I know anyone who would do that.)
In some traditions, purple clergy shirts are reserved for bishops. For maximum accuracy, have your Sim bishop wear a large cross necklace as a symbol of her office. Here's one that works--a typical pectoral cross would be larger and on a longer chain, but that wouldn't work with this outfit.
About the mesh
I can't believe that no one has done this yet, but I can't find it if they have, so...the basegame meshes afbodytweedjacket and efbodytweedjacket both reference the same textures...but for some reason, I can only find two of them in the game. The blue version is available for both adults and elders and the red version is available for elders only. There is also a third version, a brown one with a lovely pink sweater underneath, that I learned about when I found this wonderful separate version of the elder top, but cannot find anywhere in BodyShop. So, I went ahead and converted the red outfit to adult and made the brown one available for both. The files are very small as they reference the existing Maxis textures that are already in your game. They are categorized as Everyday/Casual and Outerwear, because everyone needs more outerwear (and that jacket looks pretty cozy to me).

Special thanks to everybody who ever wrote a tutorial about repository-ing clothing. (I'm not sure what my problem was, but it seems to work now.)
