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.
This is another (very) long-term project that I just got the energy and motivation to complete. If you, like me, are totally tired of seeing your doctors run around in those scrubs, time to have a bit of variety! Here are 9 different tops with lab coat to mix it up a bit--your doctors can be anything from conservative to contemporary, to casual, to country!

All tops are morphed (except for pregnancy), and contain all three LODs. All of these tops contain meshes and textures from various EPs/SPs, but are base-game compatible and will be found in the everyday and career categories for young adults and adult sims. Individual poly counts are below.

Coat:LOD1/HLODLOD2/MLODLOD3/LLODNo. of channels
Sweater Top:3708 polys1782 polys844 polys3 channels
Oxford Shirt w/ Tie Top:3623 polys1768 polys800 polys4 channels
V-Neck Sweater Top:3687 polys1799 polys846 polys3 channels
Vibe Top:3760 polys1808 polys894 polys4 channels
Outdoor Life Stuff Top:3694 polys1802 polys797 polys3 channels
Tropics Top:3766 polys1800 polys805 polys3 channels
Chinese Top:3640 polys1801 polys891 polys3 channels
Bolo Tie Top:3716 polys1980 polys904 polys4 channels
French Cravat Top:3734 polys1796 polys851 polys4 channels

Most channels were changed to 6x6 or 8x8 to accommodate patterns better. Outfit channels are as follows:

Sweater Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--sweater, Channel 3--sweater collar
Oxford Shirt w/ Tie Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--shirt, Channel 3--tie, Channel 4--shirt collar
V-Neck Sweater Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--sweater, Channel 3--shirt
Vibe Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--vest, Channel 3--shirt, Channel 4--tie
Outdoor Life Stuff Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--sweater, Channel 3--undershirt
Tropics Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--shirt, Channel 3--shirt collar
Chinese Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--shirt, Channel 3--collar and shirt details
Bolo Tie Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--shirt, Channel 3--vest, Channel 4--bolo tie details
French Cravat Top: Channel 1--coat, Channel 2--vest, Channel 3--tie, Channel 4--shirt

I have done my best to test these out in advance, but due to the way they were frankenmeshed, you may get occasional bleed-through or mesh-poking, particularly if your sim is near 100% fat/muscular. Some of the tops have sleeve cuffs that animate a bit strangely when your sim starts gesturing. Unfortunately, I never could figure that one out. Sorry!

As always, I hope you and your male sims will enjoy

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Everyone, thank you for your kind commentary. And good idea, cutsocks! I'll re-tag it now.

Ladies already have a very nice accessory lab coat available to them on the interwebs, so I didn't deem it as necessary.

This is great! Downloading it now.

Variety is EXACTLY what long-term players like us need.

Which one is the V Neck with tie?

My game freezes at the startup screen when this is in the mod folder. Not sure whether incompatibility with another mod or incompatibility with the game.

Like the above, I'd love this for Sims 4. I have a doctor character who basically is always in his doctor 'uniform' and it would be perfect. Would love it if you'd consider converting it! (or giving permission to convert it; I've been wanting to learn how to do that anyway, lol.)
