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.
I've always been fascinated with the fashions that graced the courts of 18th century Europe (I love the costumes in such films as Amadeus and Dangerous Liaisons). As such, I decided to make a suit of clothes for your male sims who may live in that era. Of course fantasy, gothic, or even JRock sims would look equally good in the outfit.

The suit is constructed of crimson and ivory cloth and trimmed with gold embroidery and crimson piping. In an effort to make it more functional, I made a few accessories to go with it. For day, your sim may don a tricorne to run errands around town or oversee his estate. For times when full dress is required, such as formal court occasions or a ball, your sim may adorn his head with a stylish powdered wig. And to further display your sim's wealth, your sim can wear a set of rings decorated with gold, silver, diamonds and sapphire enamel.

I've also included a copy of Rose's hair (the brown hair seen in the above picture) that I alpha-edited especially to be worn with the tricorne.

For more pictures, see below or you're welcome to visit my site where I've included extra pictures not shown here.

The sim modeling this suit can be downloaded here.


Special thanks to:

Sussi for her terrific 18th century suit and wig meshes, Generalzoi for her amazing tricorne and feather mesh, Rose for her sexy hair mesh and hair texture that she allowed me to alpha-edit, and Aikea Guinea for her wonderful triple rings mesh. Without such awesome meshers (is that a word?), I would never have been inspired to make this outfit and accessories.

Thank you! Most of the furniture comes from VitaSims2 (look under Objects > Donation Sets and then look for the Amber Room and Louis XIV Bedroom collections). I downloaded the harpsichord from Simnuts101 (just do a search for the name on this site). And the walls, floors and ceilings can be found at KomoSims.

ASK[hope you don't mind if I abbreviate your name ], this is truly lovely. It's actually just what I was looking for but couldn't find the time to make, myself. You do fantastic work and I'm looking forward to future submissions!

Beautiful work here. I'd love to see more. I've got a site of my own for 18th century downloads, and this will make a nice addition to my collection of clothing from that era.
