This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I made this set for a story. They have been made for characters that have been in my head for years, so I put a lot of thought into the style and detail. I think of the clothing as being Angela's Ashes-esque; that's really the best way I can describe it. The textures are mostly all wool and tweed, in dull colours, and they are nice and dirty, with holes and such. They are meant for use in the 1920s/1930s, but some of them will work okay for earlier than that, some as early as the Victorian Era.

I actually made these quite a while ago and have just never gotten around to uploading them until now, probably because of how personal they are, so I wasn't that eager to share them. I don't know how popular of a theme this is... I guess I'll find out. Also I'm sure I'll make some more stuff for my own use, so whether I upload them I don't know. Ideas are welcome too. Sometimes I'm void of them and I need inspiring.

Other things that I have made that I associate with this set (whether other people do or not, I don't know...) :P
- http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=168411 (I use these for formalwear)
- I've made a ton of other tartans too, so you can also check those out
- http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=163322 (You can't wear it, but they go there in these clothes) :P
