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.
My young Sims needed some new Outerwear! A snowsuit and mittens isn't always appropriate. So I took the H&M men's pea coat mesh and stuck it with some basic jeans (I figured my Sims wouldn't appreciate the leisure-suit pants and "old man" shoes that came with the original mesh), changed the cotton fabric of the coat to wool, and fixed the UV mapping on the back of the neck (silly Maxis...). The coat comes in eight colours, and I've paired the coats with four different colours of jeans.

All of the outfits are unisex, and they're set as Everyday and Outerwear.

I am instantly in love with these! It makes me wonder what other treasures you may convert from the H&M Stuff Pack. :D

Thanks!

Yay for more outerwear for kids! It's just like you say, a snowsuit and mittens isn't always what our Simlets need - but at the same time, you may want something warmer for them than just a sweater and a scarf. These are perfect!

Absolutely a must! Thank you.

Strangetown (in my game) is far too warm for actual Winter clothes.

I really LOVE the fact that these are "light" winter clothes. I don't like that most outerwear is bulky snow suits. I really like that you've paired these reasonable coats with jeans. I like to match up the pants to the everyday pants, as much as possible. That way, it looks like they throw on the coat over an everyday jeans outfit, rather than doing a complete clothing change to go outside. These look really cute. Thanks!

First, I'd like to say thank-you for ALL your fabulous clothing for kids! It makes the game so much more enjoyable. I find having various colours of the same outfit especially useful for colour coordinating twins who look similar.

I'm having some major, heart-breaking problems with these coats as well as your trench coats for boys and girls, however. I know I have all the files and meshes. I have base game and seasons, no other EPs.

They are showing up in the game, and can be bought fine. However, both the thumbnail and when worn they show up choppy, misaligned, and with a scarf on. The trenchcoats look like jeans with a firefighter coat above. When they are chosen in CAS as outerwear, they show up beautifully on the model, but once you play the family they are again not the same outfit. They look like a half-finished image from a paint program.

I know troubleshooting isn't your job, but any insight or suggestions? Anyone else ever encountered this? All your other content works very well for me.

It sounds like your game is displaying the LOD meshes. Your graphics settings are probably too low. Set them higher and the problem should go away.

Thank-you SO much!!! Playing with the graphics settings was exactly the fix I needed. Feel a bit silly I didn't think of it.....

I really appreciate that you were willing to help me out and that you still visit comments on your content. You are very talented with creating your material.
