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.
Edit (July 19): Uploaded a new file that really isn't available for townies. D'oh! Many thanks to Iggysaurus for pointing that out to me!

While fumbling around and making a sim, I realized that I wanted a top for him that didn't exist. I knew there were lots of vests out there, but most of them had sleeves rolled to the forearm. I needed something with sleeves rolled to the biceps. After finally feeling my way around frankenmeshing, I now have a shirt to share with all of you! Dress it up, dress it down ... make it as formal or informal as your sims need!

This top is a combination of the "hotel clerk" torso from Island Paradise and sleeves from a base game shirt. You do not need Island Paradise installed for this shirt to show in your game, but you will have to be patched to patch level 1.55.

Shirt and vest are mapped according to their original Maxis textures, so they don't entirely line up at the sleeves. Damn it, Jim, I'm a mesher, not a texturer ... er! 3 channels, all morphs included. Currently only available for YA and Adult sims, but I will work on a version for Elders shortly.

Shirt has been tested in-game and works well with animations. Enabled for everyday and formal, not enabled for random, so you won't see townies wearing it. Tell them fools to get their own style!
