Nice. I like men with stubble.

These are thick enough to double as a closely trimmed beard -- thanks!

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

Love it! Don't want to use the maxis beards, too thick, or the maxis stubble, too thin, so this is just right.

Cool! Just like the people before me said, I hate the maxis beard and this resembles a nice trimmed beard. Thanks!

Very nice, these are extremely necessary, as CatOfEvilGenius have said, Maxis' beards are too thick and the stubbles are too thin!These are just perfect!

@jrb06: the hair is from Seasons EP.

It's brilliant!

It's very nice to have some thick stubble that is not as thin as the thickest stubble from the base game, and not as thick as the light beard from the base game. It also fits perfectly as a layer of stubble underneath the light beard for more variation.

Thank you, this stubble is great!
My men always need more variation.
I wish there were more stubbles like that one...
