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.
I really liked the Baggy T/pants combo that came with the base game, but I wanted my sims to be able to wear the shirt with whatever bottoms they chose, plus I needed some less form-fitting clothes, so for my first mesh project, I deleted the bottom half of the outfit, leaving just the shirt.

UPDATE 2/21/08: I found out from mike7366 the other day that the original mesh made the game crash if your sim was wearing it & went to get a job. So, I was getting ready to post something in the body shop meshing thread when I noticed I had a PM from exportdry, who was willing to try his hand at fixing it for me. Long story short, he had to make part of the mesh an alpha because of a glitch w/ maxis pants showing through when I changed the comment in Milkshape to top instead of body. So, not only will you have to re-download the mesh, but the recolors as well. I'm soooo sorry about this everyone.

UPDATE 2/6/08: If anyone read my last post or zoomed in really close on the neck, you noticed that there was a bit of a gap in the neck, which has now been fixed. If for some reason you re-download the mesh & the recolors show up as regular maxis shirts (which they did for me until I liked the 3DIR to the mesh again) just re-download the tops too. Let everything overwrite your old files.

Feel free to recolor, just be sure to give me credit!

Is this causing the same crashing issues as Flying Pidgeon's meshes?

Yeah, this was done before and had some issues, particularly with OFB I think.

Default Problem with GL bottoms.
I absolutely adore these baggy Ts. I wanted them when I saw them in the creator feedback forum.

One problem, when put with Glamour Life bottoms, the bottom textures bleed through onto the Ts.

I don't think this is your fault. No, it's Maxis, see the link below.

ETA: Fanseelamb fixed the bottoms. My mistake, they are H&M Fashion bottoms, Not Glamour Life.

Sorry, no more requests for the preg teens.

Wow! Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! I'm working on making some more recolors to upload soon. If anyone wants a particular color, let me know.

Damage Inc356 & spaceadventureGO: So are you saying this is causing your game to crash?

"So are you saying this is causing your game to crash?"

No no no, I am just telling you that this same shirt was made before and it caused other people's games to crash. I haven't downloaded your shirts yet because I'm worried the same thing will happen, but I'm gonna keep checking back to see if anyone has any problems.

Great Job Ang. But I must report on here that the mesh does cause the game to crash. Any adult male who wears this shirt on a residential lot will cause the game to crash when he selects and accepts a career from any source (computer, newspaper, insiminator).

Yah, I'm working on the teen male right now, but it's my first conversion so it's taking a little longer than I thought. I'm hoping to have the mesh finished within the next week.

Now this was a very smart idea! Thank you so much. The maxis top separates are rather lame.

Not exactly sure why Maxis decided that teenagers or adult men don't wear t-shirts, so thanks!

Even though this download is a little on the old side, baggy T's are still very much around. Thank you!
