I've always been fascinated with the fashions that graced the courts of 18th century Europe (I love the costumes in such films as Amadeus and Dangerous Liaisons). As such, I decided to make a suit of clothes for your male sims who may live in that era. Of course fantasy, gothic, or even JRock sims would look equally good in the outfit.

The suit is constructed of crimson and ivory cloth and trimmed with gold embroidery and crimson piping. In an effort to make it more functional, I made a few accessories to go with it. For day, your sim may don a tricorne to run errands around town or oversee his estate. For times when full dress is required, such as formal court occasions or a ball, your sim may adorn his head with a stylish powdered wig. And to further display your sim's wealth, your sim can wear a set of rings decorated with gold, silver, diamonds and sapphire enamel.

I've also included a copy of Rose's hair (the brown hair seen in the above picture) that I alpha-edited especially to be worn with the tricorne.

For more pictures, see below or you're welcome to visit my site where I've included extra pictures not shown here.

The sim modeling this suit can be downloaded here.

Special thanks to:

Sussi for her terrific 18th century suit and wig meshes, Generalzoi for her amazing tricorne and feather mesh, Rose for her sexy hair mesh and hair texture that she allowed me to alpha-edit, and Aikea Guinea for her wonderful triple rings mesh. Without such awesome meshers (is that a word?), I would never have been inspired to make this outfit and accessories.
