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.

Five puffy vests for cowboys who are too cool for trench coats and too cold for no coats. Aren't they cute? Yeah. Just don't tell the cowboys that.

I love these so much! Although it's 96 degrees (36 in Celsius) here and just looking at these lovely sims dressed so wintery makes me feel dizzy The vests are adorable, and so are those little scarves. Oh, and plaid shirts - yay!

Yes. My timing is spectacular, is it not? We're in the middle of a heatwave here too - 32 Celsius outside and feels hotter than that. But hey, it can still be winter in our sims games!

Thanks for the very kind words, Misty.

Thank you very much for these! Swedish summer is a fickle thing, so this is something my man-Sims might very well need in June.

Heck, it snowed here just a few weeks ago. Y'all need to move to the mountains. Today, it's 82. Um, Fahrenheit, obviously. (Backward American, yes.) That's...uh...uh...Mid-20s, Celsius, I think it is. And no humidity, 'cuz it's desert here, yessiree bob.

This is adorable, fanseelamb. And it's nice to have non-dorky outerwear for my preciouses. I mean, my guys. (And with preg morphs, too, whee! )

Google says 82 degrees Fahrenheit = 27.7777778 degrees Celsius. That's still pretty hot, although no humidity must be nice. The humidity is making it feel like 44°C (111.2°F) here today even though it's "only" 34 (93.2°F). Thank goodness for air conditioning.

Of course I started this project back in April when it was not quite so hot. Just took a couple months to get around to adding the morphs and uploading.

Anyway. Thank you all for the kind words! They are much appreciated.

My cowboys will be so happy! Literally. Any danger of giving them short open rain slickers based on the same textures and mesh?

Love these! Perfect for my Rory Williams (Doctor Who) Sim! If you wouldn't mind a request... could you make an 'Everyday' version, please?

Fantastic work, btw!
