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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are the BV Kimonos converted for your male elders. (female version here)
I know, this outfit is actually called yakuta. Also for males???? you see, don´t know nothing about traditional asian clothing so don´t be angry that i called these kimonos, maxis did and many people know these under kimono....
Outfit is bumpmapped and has a working fat morph. BV is not required.
There are 2 sets:

Set 1
Set 1 includes 6 Kimonos and the mesh and the outfits use the textures of adult male kimonos. (black/white kimonos, blue kimonos with fans, green/white kimonos with bamboo print -> look at the pics below)



Set 2
Set 2 includes 4 Kimonos and the mesh and these outfits use the teen textures. (black/brown with white print, blue with wave print, blue-white one with flowers)



Here they are from the back:

set 1



set 2


I hope you like them

Actually the word kimono means clothing or garment and this particular type of kimono is called a yukata and is worn in the warmer seasons and not for formal occasions... the more you know ;-) Great upload, would download if I hadn't done them myself lol(been too lazy to upload though).

You're awesome! Thanks for converting and uploading these!

Yukata is a more simple clothing than a Kimono. Normally it's made of a lighter fabric and you wear only one layer. A real Kimono (as in *the* Kimono, not just the general tranlation of clothing) is heavier and thicker and made of a better fabric. Also, for a real outfit you have quite a few layers :-)
But I really don't think it matters what you call them, you did an awesome job that's enough :-D thanks again.
