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.

Hello guys,
today i bring you some outerwear for elders - a long coat. this outfit came with GlamourStuff and was for adults - categorised as formal!! how foolish is this??? I always thought these would be so suitable for elders, both of my grandfathers have such a coat^^
Well, the outfit comes in the three original colours but i´ve made 2 additional ones. The mesh is only in the first file! Outfit is bumpmapped and has a fat morph. It´s only categorised as Outerwear and GS is not required.





Hope you like these

I love your conversions for elders!! I don't know why maxis thinks elders have to have such funky wardrobes.

Thanks for these, there is little variety in elder outerwear, especially for poor grandpa! The green and blue are quite nice. Colorful but not flashy, still very suitable for the older gentleman.

Thank you so much for all these elder conversions. They need a decent wardrobe for a change!

I don`t have an Outerwear catagory in my game; does this mean that it won`t show up in my catalog?

Yes GenOp, if you don't have Seasons and this outfit is only categorized as outerwear, you can't have it.

Dustfinger, you might want to add a version categorized as everyday for those without Seasons or change the compatibility marker for this post.

If you have GLS you can use the ones I made available for elders, they're categorized as outerwear and formal.

These are great! I've been dying to find a conversion of those military style formals from the men for elders. Has anyone made those?

Very suitable for elders, thanks! I don`t know, why EAxis forgot much clothes for the elders in the expansion-packs. It´s very good, that you give us these here!

Just last night I was dressing my elder and was so irritated by the lack of decent clothes for this sim age. I love all the style granddads but its fabulous to have a dignified coat for a gentleman. Thanks muchly for your coats the timing was brilliant.

Thank you so much for making these! When I first saw them and realized that for one they are only for Adult males, not Elder Males I was puzzled and then when I realized that they were also not even considered "outerwear" after I added Seasons to my game I was even more puzzled. I think that sometimes the employees of Maxis seem to overlook things that should have been obvious. Glad you fixed them.
#24 Old 11th Apr 2009 at 10:07 PM
Well, I`ve got Seasons now, so I`ve downloaded them.
