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.

I've attempted to make a traditional looking Sherwani for adult males. This is an overcoat worn on formal occasions.

Thanks to CatOfEvilGenius for this info. For those who don't read the replies.

It was gradually adopted by most of the Indian aristocracy, mostly Muslim, and later by the general population, as a more westernized form of traditional attire. It is the national dress of Pakistan for men, as it is not specifically associated with any of the provinces. In India, it is generally worn for formal occasions in winter by those of North Indian descent, especially those from Uttar Pradesh and Hyderabadi muslims. Most government officials in South Asia wear the formal black Sherwani on state occasions, which in India is closely associated with the nation's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Many South Asian grooms wear them as wedding dress. Sherwanis are usually embroidered or detailed in some way. Also, in Pakistan, Sherwanis for women are becoming popular."
