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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Edit (July 19): Uploaded a new file that really isn't available for townies. D'oh! Many thanks to Iggysaurus for pointing that out to me!

While fumbling around and making a sim, I realized that I wanted a top for him that didn't exist. I knew there were lots of vests out there, but most of them had sleeves rolled to the forearm. I needed something with sleeves rolled to the biceps. After finally feeling my way around frankenmeshing, I now have a shirt to share with all of you! Dress it up, dress it down ... make it as formal or informal as your sims need!

This top is a combination of the "hotel clerk" torso from Island Paradise and sleeves from a base game shirt. You do not need Island Paradise installed for this shirt to show in your game, but you will have to be patched to patch level 1.55.

Shirt and vest are mapped according to their original Maxis textures, so they don't entirely line up at the sleeves. Damn it, Jim, I'm a mesher, not a texturer ... er! 3 channels, all morphs included. Currently only available for YA and Adult sims, but I will work on a version for Elders shortly.

Shirt has been tested in-game and works well with animations. Enabled for everyday and formal, not enabled for random, so you won't see townies wearing it. Tell them fools to get their own style!

Polygon Counts:

Cocomama, for the tutorial on combining meshes that made me think I could do this to begin with
Buckley, for pointing out a very obvious error that I was making
And everyone in CFF and #create channel. You guys rock!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
