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.

Yay! I made sunglasses! The game lacks good sunglasses, so I decided to make some from Armani Exchange.

I hope you enjoy these sunglasses, all comments are welcomed! It comes in 4 shade colors.

In the pictures of the sims in game, and not in CAS, you can tell that there is something wrong with the transparency of the glass. This problem no longer exist. I fixed it after I took the pics. But the picture of the shade colors shows it corrected and what it will look like in the game. So it's all good.

Known Issues
-Although the sun glasses may be found in the catalog for other ages and genders, these were specifically made for Adult Males.
-If your sim has a rather large head, it might poke through the sunglasses. But I found that EA's are the same way.

Looks awesome FP!! Can I ask where the hair is from?

I love sunglasses, so they are really appreciated, but I have often the problem of blue-flashing accessories. And I haven't SimPE to fix it (and I will not fiddle around with it, think what you want, I am too afraid to mess everything up), so could you please tell me if the mesh is fixed?

Lots of thanks anyway for your work, I have many of your creations and always have to smile about your name )

The Hair isn´t from the sims i think. The hair which is used in the picture is from a real picture i think. But it was a good work.

And yes, the hair is fake. It is real hair photoshopped on a sim.

Hi, really nice sunglasses! But I've had a problem with the mesh, there is a blue sunglasses mesh above my sim (when playing the game) when they move/bend down, so it only really works if the sim is standing up!
Just letting you know in case you hadn't sorted it out!
