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.
Here begins the second collection based on the teen girls' school jumpers, this time the hunter green and gold. Not only the kids are going back to school but the teachers and administrators also. Here are a few separates for the older men in your families. Five shirts, three tucked and two untucked, team up with four different pairs of slacks, giving the gentlemen a wide variety of combinations. The tucked-in shirts include a pale sage, a sage stripe and a tan floral. The untucked shirts are in a gold multi-stripe and a tan star print. (They require a mesh by t2suggas which can be found here.) The tan star print shirt is also enabled for adults.

The slacks include a lovely dark hunter green flannel which matches the girl's jumper and three genuine Donegal tweeds imported from Ireland in shades of green and brown.
These are Maxis mesh but I use the default replacement by CatOfEvilGenius which can be found here. I love the length on these. They cover the ankles but show the shoes which was the preferred length in this vintage period.

Here are details of some of the fabrics.

The girl's jumper can be found here.

Denim collection can be found here. The mens' clothing is in the comments section.

Love this , we need male clothes and the elder sims want to look nice as well. There is one problem I found after downloading this and looking at it in create a sims the untucked goldmultistripe and tan star shirt the icon for the shirt so you will know what it is or look like when looking for it in the catalog do not show up. I did download the t2 suggas mesh as you told us to, from his shirt rar, not the sweater rar.

Instead the two shirts are there hiding under a maxis shirt, which you would never know, until you click on it. I hope I am clear here all else pants and the tucked shirts are there and fine, they look good and well done.

Love the patterned shirts for elders. I know patterns can be a royal pain in the butt to make, so I really appreciate these. Glad you recolored t2suggas' mesh, it's a great mesh and needs more recolors.

I like these shirts but I'm also hoping to find a fix for the problem with a lot of the older male's tops being a bear chest instead of the shirt it's supposed to be. If there is a fix for this I hope someone tells me what it its. Thanks for making these. My elders hate being dowdy!
