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 haven't the first idea what inspired me to work on this bane of suburbia, the Dad Who Doesn't Know That He Needs Longer Pants. But I did, and as usual the project got away from me and became complicated. Ah, the pleasures of too many ideas and not enough brainpower!

There are four separate pieces available for your downloading pleasure--two pairs of shorts, two complete outfits. All include all LODs and all morphs (except pregnancy. This doesn't seem like the most comfortable outfit for pregnancy).

Both pairs of shorts have three variations with three channels. The shorts are enabled for everyday, swimwear, athletic wear, career, and random.
The outfits each have two variations--one with a belt and one without--with three channels, and are enabled for everyday, athletic wear, career, and random.

These outfits are base-game compatible. All textures/meshes are from in-game items.

Edit, 09/16/2018: The version for elders is now available HERE

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.
