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.
Back again with more office-wear type clothing for guys, because YAY OFFICE DRONES
This time it's a pair of oxford shirts, one with an added undershirt, and the other an edit of a Store item. Because for whatever reason, the higher-ups don't believe in standard long-sleeved shirts with standard long ties!

Both of these tops have three channels and all morphs except pregnancy included. You will find them in the everyday, formal, career, and outerwear categories. They are valid for random sims. I find the pattern tiling on EA items to be unrealistically large, so the channels are all set to 8x8 tiling (as opposed to the standard 4x4). Custom thumbnail, one preset. Base-game compatible, all textures are EAs.

There is an area on the back shoulder/sleeve that has slightly-warped UV mapping, so patterns will go a bit awry there. I tried to adjust it as best I could to make it less unsightly, but c'est la vie.

I hope you and your male sims enjoy them!

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.
