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.
How are all you cool cats today? Hmm? Copacetic I hope! We don't want no sad-eyed puppies in the speakeasy!

Today I bring to you all... Fedoras! Yes, finally a fedora that can be worn with almost any hairstyle (Some hairstyles may cause very minor clipping, and one or two just won't fly at all). It works for Teens through Elders for both genders. Excess ages have been removed. This accessory has it's own bin number, so you can wear it with other accessories (Maxis or Custom).

Common Comments:
There are gaps/holes when you look through the back!
I know. It's a normals thing. Frankly, I don't know how to fix it.

Why is it so big?
To accommodate the greatest amount of hairstyles possible.

It's not on straight.
I prefer my fedoras with a little additude. :3 If you want it straight, you'll have to edit the mesh yourself. kk?

Previews and Colors:
Larger Images can be Viewed Below the Main Post.


Yes, all colors are available for everyone. I just thought it would be pointless and time-consuming to take a picture of each color for each age and gender.

File Contents:
SSC_FedoraMeshes.zip: The four mesh files required to use the hats.
SSC_FedoraRecolors.zip: All 9 recolors (labelled for convenience). You MUST download at least one for the hat to appear in game.

Expansion Packs:
You shouldn't need any as this is a new mesh, plus it was based off of a base-game mesh.

My Policy:

Meshes:
-You may alter the mesh file for distribution if you recieve my permission and give me credit. All other policies still apply.
-You may re-texture (Please tell me if you do; I'd love to see it!)
-You may include the mesh with your re-texture as long as I am given credit and my read-me is a part of the download.
-You may refit to other ages with my permission
-My Creations and derivative works are to remain free at all times (This means you may not offer retextures of my mesh in paysites/sections)


Polygon Counts:
Polys: 410
Vertices: 310

thank you. The first thing I thought when I saw the trench coat and wingtip outerwear in seasons was that I needed a fedora for my sim guys to wear with it.

Ah! This is just want I wanted! Thank you so much!
I did a search for "Fedora" on S2C a while back, and saw you mentioned you were working on one-- so I guess I was looking forward to this. ^^;
Sims really do need nice hats like this. Well, mine do, at least.
Thank you!
