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
