Maxis really rejected men when it comes to shorts, only giving them one option for everyday. I liked the shorts they gave, but I also wanted a less bulky option for my guys, so I recolored the swim trunks mesh to make these slim shorts. I used the maxis texture for the cargo shorts but I got rid of the huge side pockets to simplify them. These shorts are for your young adult and adult men and can be found in everyday and athletic under bottoms. They can be recolored, but they have a button overlay that cannot, like the cargo shorts. The buttons are found on the two back pockets and one on the top of the fly.

One problem with the shorts is that because they use the swim trunks mesh, they bumpmap for the tie shows up. This isn't a major issue as the majority of tops cover most, if not all, of the tie.

Look at that display of manliness!
That's a look you can only achieve while wearing the slim shorts.

The textures used in the preview pictures are the heathered pattern found under fabrics, the tweed pattern found under fabrics, and a custom solid color from misc.
