There are so many talented skinners out there that make wonderful outfits for women. Why wont people do the same thing for our male Sims? SUre, I have downloaded a few really nice outfits for my Sim males, but there really isnt enough. Female skins FAR outnumber the male skins. And it's frustrating. My guys are running out of things to wear. And I dont mean just jeans and tshirts either. I mean stylish/sexy clothes. Here is a site with a good example of the kinds of things I'm talking about: http://www.internationalmale.com/
Men CAN be stylish and sexy too. We need more user made clothing for men, other than those god awful outfits that Maxis made.
Let's make our sim guys look good too.

Yea I miss my downloads too..though I have to say the downloads I'm missing the most aren't the clothes LOL...I had a lot of more 'adult' themed objects hehe...can't wait 'til we can have those again. XD +perv+ But more sexy clothes would be nice...we (men) don't all dress like we walked out of The World's Most Boring Store..(but then I can't talk, I enjoy crossdressing).
I would try my hand at creating some, it's not only you guys who are frustrated at the lack of selection for our simmie males, but for the life of me I can't figure out the whole alpha channel thing. If anyone could give me a hand with that I'd gladly do the artwork involved.
Ah that just reinforces the fact that I love you Jorenne <3 (platonically of course, in a distant, fearful, worship-y way XD). Now I must go and find someone who CAN help you, because I'm the most useless thing since a chocolate teapot.
I quite agree with you ScottyToledo, I find this very frustrating as well but I think there are two answers to this.
Firstly, the same thing has been mentioned on another forum when this question was raised. It was noted that in the real world outside there exists far more clothing, and a better variety for women than men.
Secondly, I think a lot of adult male sims 2 game players are playing a very female orientated game so are more interested in making female clothing.
It is also quite possible, but I am only guessing here, that the ladies who also play this game are designing clothes that they themselves would like to have and wear.
I think it has to be said that we need a gay orientated community lot outfitters store to get the stylish clothing for our male sims !! Now there's a challenge for the modders, but sadly we will need the clothing to stock the store first.....lol
On the subject of plaid Pj's...ugh I hate how teen males only have PJ's like that, I mean the men don't have a large selection of bottoms-only pj's but at least it's something...Sorry I'll finish my insignificant rant now. +shuts up+
I made some tiger-inspired underwear once... I don't know where the file went. It was tiger-print boxer shorts with an open robe top in black silk. That turned out okay, I could make some stuff like that.
I love that jacket... I've got a very vague idea of how I could go about making something like it. I'm not sure it'll work out, but I'll give it a try. To be honest, I'm more used to doing underwear for guys.
If there's anybody else who's good with everydaywear stuff, I think they'd do a better job than me. I'll have a go though ^^
Thanks Kira ^^; I love that WooHoo memory. The first chance I get, I'm going to make myself a t-shirt in real life with it on the front, and "Do You WooHoo?" on the back. I can't wait to see how many people stop me and mention The Sims ^^
I already made one lol! Yes I like making random t shirts for myself...if I can find myself a camera, then I'll have to take pics and post them in these forums..see how many other mental people there are out there with 'do you woohoo?' t shirts...
