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 thought i do mostly stuff for female sims and also have the most clothing for them and not very much for males. So i thought about something for the men and decided to do the nice shirts which came with the H&M Stuffpack as separate tops.
All in all there are 5 new meshes, 5 different shirt styles with their recolours.
Every mesh has a working fat morph and every shirt is bumpmapped.
I could combine them with nearly all bottoms in my game (it depends of the UV-map), sometimes the shirt sticks a bit in the bottom, but that´s not with all of them and i noticed it mainly in CAS.
You can download every shirt set separately, every set included mesh and recolours.

Here are the different shirts:

Luca Shirt

I don´t know why, but this was always one of my favourites... Comes in the original three colours.



Madras Shirt

This comes in 9 colours, the 4 originals which you can see in the picture below and i´ve made 5 additionals (you can see them in an extra pic at the download tab). These extra colours are in an extra folder in the rar file, so you can either keep or delete them



Uniform Shirt

This comes in the 4 original colours and 2 additionals (look in the download tab for a pic).



Uniform Shirt with Tie / Forge Shirt

In the left you can see the Uniform shirt with a funky tie and in the left the Forge shirt. The tie shirt comes in 3 original colours.
The Forge shirt comes in the 2 original colours which you can see below and i´ve made 4 other colours for it. Keep or delete them after downloading




So... the names weren´t my idea, maxis named them like this
Hope it isn´t to confusing with all the colours...

See you

PS: Maybe someone wants do to some recolours, i was a bit lazy...

AND THEN I MAULED YOU TO DEATH WITH LOVE.

You have no idea how long I've looked for a rolled sleeve, button up for men!

Thanks for these. Been meaning to do them at some point, now I don't have to. I'll check them out in my game! You are so right about male sims being overlooked and underserved in the clothes department.

Did you say in the main thread that the UV map of the shirt overlaps some bottoms? That would only matter with one group shirt meshes. If you make shirts that are two groups, joined at chest level, and the lower group is not named top, then it doesn't matter if the shirt UV overlaps bottoms, you'll only see shirt texture on the shirt.

Did you have to alter the bone weights at all near the hips and butt? Mens pants and body meshes tend to be much more uniform in shape and bone weights than women's pants, so I'm guessing the bone weights probably didn't need much of a change?

Oh thank you so much for this, I love the untucked look, but didn't really like the very fitted/skin tight shirts floating around.

Again, Thank you!

Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! I LOVE these. The Luca shirt's outfit was one of my favourite H&M outfits, and while I didn't mind the pants it came with, it's always good to have options. And the Madras shirt I absolutely adore, and actually own a shirt or two like it, but I never used it because I HATED the pants it came with, those god-awful rolled-up capri thingers. Now I can use the shirt with.. normal pants! :D

SQUEE! These were much needed. Now my guys can have shirts other than t-shirts!

Thank you! This is great. I love separates! The Luca shirt, especially, is so sexy, but they're all very useful and now, I can choose the pants!

Just as an aside: I love the blonde shaggy haircut for guys (it's also on your banner) but I can't find it. I searched all of the creators you listed, to no avail. Can you tell me who made it? I'd love to have it for my own sims.

Thanks for these. My guys didn't have any seperate shirts (except maxis ones). I especially love the one with the tie, I'm glad you seperated it (even though I love the original outfit) as I wanted it paired with none rolled up jeans. Thanks again :D

Thank you all for the nice comments

@surprised by witches: It´s a recolour by myself on a mesh by HIM666. I tried to upload times ago, but it was rejected because it´s a conversion of a peggy pay mesh i think. But the male version is free. I thought of upload this hair at maxisdreams, look out there

@Cat: I´ve done two mesh gropus. The UV map of the collar (??) or the tie does overlap with shoe textures etc. sometimes, but only with some pants. They work completely with maxis pants (only the tie shirt looks strange with one kind of NL jeans). This two top-group-thing was such a great tip, thanks
I´ve changed the bone weights as well as possible.

You can never have enough shirts, we got some nice pants with various eps, but never anything good to use with them, this is perfect!
