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.

Hey everyone,

I've created these lovely, sexy shorts for your sims, because i thought it was very weird maxis didn't make any :P. I custom made the mesh and tested in game, it seems to work fine.

I've made them Abercrombie shorts, because i'm planning on creating a lot more A&F stuff (so your sims can all be fashionable). See the detailing on the back of the shorts.

The shorts come in 5 different colours, light blue, dark blue, light grey, dark grey and black. I finished them up with nice leather flipflops .

Let me know if anything doesn't work right .


EDIT: I've included a picture of the shorts combined with HP's untuckable shirts (thanks btw HP for these amazing shirts :D), ( for HP's profile), you can see it's working :D

EDIT: I've made the shorts for teens, too, you can find them here
They're paired with allstars instead of flipflops. Hope you like those too!

EDIT: Thanks to the amazing CatOfEvilGenius (profile see I can now offer you all an improved mesh (with the same textures of course). The new mesh offers you a pregnant morph, has an improved UV-map, and is free of the visible seam.

I would like to ask you all to download the new, edited file .

All custom content included

special thanks to:
-the people of the Creator Feedback Forum -CatOfEvilGenius, for offering me the improved mesh (and caring so much about the shorts to make it :D)

I downloaded the one that says edit, the second one, but it still has the problem with shirts. I know this hasn't been checked in a long time, but I still thought I'd see if someone could help me fix it. can someone tell me how to fix it?
