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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Four colors (one for each hair color, not counting gray), two levels of scruffiness. Binned for the sake of your poor cluttered CAS screens.

I figure if I spent so long looking for good facial fuzzies, there must be some other people out there looking for them too. The obviously manicured, straight edges on Maxis' fuzzies have bugged me for a while.

These fuzzies grow down the neck properly, and follow a more realistic growth pattern. I wanted more scruff on the upper lip, because if I were a guy, lord knows that would be the last place I'd want to run a razor over. Sharp objects on the face. Not cool.

Pictured above--
Model T is a five o'clock shadow, while T+ is more like the scruff of a three day weekend. Forgive me if the time estimate is off. T+ is scruffier. The end.

Everything else is mine.

I'm down with modding of my mods. Just let me know about it.

Bin Type: Binned
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

THANKYOU. I love having more realistic sim guys. If I could make hair, I would be creating good, manly man hair all over the place...but that's beside the point. Great upload, thank you!

I love facial hair and stubble for guys the same way I love makeup for women. Plus, this is extra great because I don't have to bin it myself!

Awesome! We need more stuff for men in the sims.. and I mean men, not twinky little fairy boys. My sim guys all look a hell of a lot more like Gregory Peck than Zac Efron.

These are awesome. You know, if the inspiration ever struck you, and you wanted to make more facial hairs, I certainly wouldn't complain!

These look great! You hit the nail on the head with people searching for this. I always seem to be looking for more man-scruff.

This is incredible! I've been needing something like this for my macho men :D.
Where'd you get the title from though? I automatically assumed it was from Jocko Homo by Devo but of course I am an 80's nerd. XD
