This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
**UPDATE 2/14/09**
There was a bump map issue with the AM tees, that has now been fixed. All other tee-shirts (child, teen, and elder) already have the proper bump mapping, so only the adult male shirts need to be re-downloaded.
The new files will override the old ones. Just copy-and-paste.


It was brought to my attention that the underwear selection for adult and teen males is sorely lacking. Well, lacking in things you might actually want to use. A choice of white or grey tank top, and then a wide selection of tacky boxers is not my idea of actual variety. So, I decided to do some recolors! My recolors all have nice, simple, understated, black boxers and then a selection in top colors AND styles! You can choose between tank tops or tee shirts, and then any color, including black and white.

These outfits are for teen AND adult males, and are categorized under underwear and sleepwear (I realize you can already sleep in undies, but I honestly don't know any guys that actually sleep in pajamas. Ever.) The colors are as shown; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, black, and white. All colors and both styles are available for both ages. The individual packages are appropriately named, so deleting any unwanted colors should be quite simple.

I hope you like them!

Thanks for the cheery colors. All my sims are rainbow bright, so they need bright undies too. I really needed the orange and yellow, especially, so thank you!

Can't quite agree that there isn't much good underwear for guys, though, see links. However, it sure does look that way when we compare to, say, dresses for women. Guys are so neglected. If it were me, I'd stick these links in the Related Pages tab. Male sim underwear makers, unite!

oepu's undies / swim
Phaenoh's briefs

Oh! I was simply referring to the state of choices they gave us with all those ~charming~ base game boxers. Certainly not saying anything against the other underwear choices here at MTS2. I personally have at least two of the ones you just listed. And thank you!

Yay! These are great! I love the fun colors! My sim men needed more colorful undies! =)

Oooh, I like Cat's idea...Elders could use some colorful undies too.

Thanks for the great work. Some simple undies for men.

Btw, I'm a guy who actually does wear pyjamas to bed.
