I LOVE the landlord outfits we got with Apartment Life, but after adorning about half of my main sim neighborhood with them, I noticed the set of keys hanging off of the waistband! Now, although this is perfectly sensible for a landlord, it's a bit odd for your average sim to be walking around with, so I made some very simple recolors of both the male and female versions of the suit, removing the key alphas, as well as the keys' shadow on the pant texture.

Then I decided that wasn't nearly enough effort to warrant an upload, so I added a nice, classic recolor of the outfit; white shirt, black pants, and a grey vest.

These outfits are for adult males and females, and are categorized under everyday and formal. The colors are as shown, and the individual packages are appropriately named, so deleting any unwanted colors should be quite simple. The only possible confusion would be with the male outfits 'greyvest' and 'monochromevest', where 'greyvest' is the one with dark khaki trousers and 'monochromevest' is the one in only shades of grey.

I hope you like them!

I never really looked at these, and I didn't know what the landlady wore since I've not had one yet.

I do like what you've done. For once EAxis made a decent outfit, but you made it better. Thanks!

Oh hi! So. I just got done raiding all your download threads and figure it's high time I come and thank you. I love everything you've uploaded so far. It's simple, well done stuff.... which is my favourite kind. I love your colour combos and the outifts you choose to work with. Some of your pics & titles crack me up too.

So thanks, favourite new creator of mine, for sharing all this lovely useful stuff.

(Those keys were just itchin' to be erased, weren't they?! Yay!)

I love this outfit beyond reason! Thank you for making this useful edit and the new recolour. I'd love to see it in different combinations of neutral colours, with different coloured shirts too, if you're interested in doing more recolours. I could never have enough recolours of this.

Thank you! ^_^

See, now I have to get Apartment Life, just because this outfit would be PERFECT for my Rocco Deluca sim. Maybe next pay day... But I'll definitely be downloading this when I get it.

Thanks for these! One of my sims just married the landlord and I loved the outfit but didn't like the keys. So this is exactly what I was looking for
