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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A doublet is a man's snug-fitting buttoned jacket that was worn in Western Europe from the Middle Ages through to the mid-17th century.

Hose are any of various styles of men's clothing for the legs and lower body, worn from the Middle Ages through the seventeenth century.

The four varieties available are: Rugged, Formal, Flamboyant, and Ragged.

Thank you for the doublets and thank you for using separate meshes for the leggings and doublets! This really opens up a lot of options for the lot of us. Now if only I could break apart the tunic meshes to go with the leggings...

Ooh! I've already tried these in my game, Aligeth, and they are spectacular. Such wonderful textures and colours, and I love how they're all a little bit unique. Thanks for sharing! .

My medieval collection is growing and growing and making me so very happy. Thank you. I am especially glad there are more choices for the males. I had to let my males wear more modern stuff because there wasn't enough for them, unless I wanted a bunch of clones running around my hood. And most of the modern stuff is jeans, jeans, and jeans every which way.

Now some very simple recolors could make the doublets and hose outfits suitable for athletic wear. Hoping someone makes it so.

Agreed on both accounts, but what I'd want would be that these would be good for the teens. But yes, I need more Medieval Clothes for the Medieval town I'm working on.

Now if these could be in Pajamas too...

I downloaded this and the formal set; the top half shows up, but the bottom half does not; not really sure what to make of it...I love them though, so I really hope it can be worked out; any suggestions?

Thats a new one on me!

I can only take a guess that theres some chance the download didn't go quite well?

You might try re-downloading, extract, put back in your usual folders.
