Best Sims 4 Alpha CC for Men: Clothes, Shoes & More

This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).

I may prefer Maxis Match over Alpha CC textures, but even I can see the appeal of Alpha CC.

Well-made Alpha CC Sims can look stunning, ethereal, and even otherworldly! Plus the realism just ups the quality.

If you’re looking to dabble in Alpha CC yourself, or if you just want to beef up your CC folders with more stuff for the men, I hear you.

And I’ve got a ton of male-focused CAS Alpha CC here to help kickstart your collecting. Happy browsing!




1. PS Alpha Skin Overlay by Pralinesims

PS Alpha Skin Overlay / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I’m starting this list off with the custom Alpha CC skin that everyone tried at one point; Pralinesims’ PS Alpha Skin Overlay.

Despite being uploaded in 2017, it still gets recommended to Sims players looking to play around with defaults, replacements, and overlays. It’s smooth, it’s decently detailed, and the quality remains top-notch!


2. Male Skin 11 Overlay by RemusSirion

Male Skin 11 Overlay / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Exactly what it says on the tin.

RemusSirion’s Male Skin 11 is a simple overlay that smoothens out rough edges and chisels out awkward corners.

It makes your Sim’s general features look more realistic and cohesive. It has seven variations and – since it’s an overlay – can be adapted to a variety of skintones.


3. Skin N20 (+Darker Colors & Fantasy) by obscurus-sims

Skin N20 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

This is a CAS set by obscurus-sims, but I really, really wanted to focus on the N20 skin.

It’s an overlay that’s so realistic and so hauntingly beautiful, it gives me chills.

It also has a version suited for darker, deeper skin colors—with some fantasy tones mixed in!


4. Crème Skin + Overlay Version by CrownSims

Crème Skin + Overlay Version / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

If you want your Sims to have that oh-so enviable filtered glow, CrownSims’ Crème Skin can help them achieve it.

This is probably the softest skin replacement I’ve ever seen, especially given the Alpha CC texture.

It may be a little unnerving if you’re coming from a custom skin that’s incredibly detailed. But give it a few plays. It’ll grow on you!


5. Ares Skin Overlay Version by Urielbeaupre

Ares Male Skin Overlay (Alpha) / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

For some true photoskinned texture, Urielbeaupre’s Ares Skin refines the surface of your Sims’ skin to create a subtly rough finish.

It’s a really good overlay for masculine features.

Plus it comes with three intensities for extra customization.


Masks & CAS Packs


6. Male CC Set by obscurus-sims

Male Set / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

CAS packs are a true godsend for me.

They save me from spending a ton of time hunting down individual CAS cosmetics that’ll work with each other.

This Male CC Set by obscurus-sims is great for adding more character to your Sims’ eyes, lips, and cheeks.


7. TS4 WM Facemask 201806 by S-Club

Facemask 201806 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

S-Club’s facemask comes in two versions; wrinkle and freckle.

It basically enhances your Male Sim’s masculine features by deepening the contour, defining the lines and corners, and adding a bit of highlight.

It’s a fantastic all-over fix if you’re trying to clean up certain facial areas without adjusting the sliders too much.


8. Skin, Eyebrows and Male Presets by obscurus-sims

Skin, Eyebrows and Male Presets / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Here’s another genetics pack from obscurus-sims!

It’s mostly presets, but hey; who doesn’t love a good preset?

It just makes it so easy to achieve aesthetically pleasing Sims! Plus, the creator’s Skin N22 adds an ethereal glow to your Sims that is just so mesmerizing.


9. Cold Horizon – Mface Overlay by WistfulCastle

Cold Horizon – Mface Overlay / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Simple and sweetly freckled, WistfulCastle’s Cold Horizon face overlay came as a pleasant surprise!

It combines face details (aka freckles) with a photoskinned facemask, so it’s a great two-for-one.

As you can see in the preview photos, the result makes for incredibly attractive Sims.


10. WM TS4 Facemask 201804 by S-Club

Facemask 201804 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Although this mask is for both Male and Female frames, I actually like it a lot better for Male Sims.

There’s just something about the deeper eyebags and defined corners that suits TS4 masculine features better.

It comes in about 19 shades that you can layer over other skins to customize the final skintone.


11. Genetics Set for Males by DDARKSTONEE

Genetics Set for Males / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Eyelids, noses, and lips – if you’ve got your heart set on creating a fairly androgynous Male Sim with softer, waifish features, DDARKSTONEE’s Genetics Set will do a lot of the heavy lifting for you!

Each feature comes with a ton of shade variations to boot.


12. Old Fashioned – Face Overlay by WistfulCastle

Old Fashioned – Face Overlay / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I love this overlay!

We definitely need more stuff for Elders. EA’s Nifty Knitting is a cool pack that adds a decent amount of Elders-exclusive items, but they could still use a little more love.

This Old Fashioned face overlay by WistfulCastle gives your Sims’ face wrinkles, texture, and other subtle signs of aging in a way that’s beautiful and realistic.


Misc. Face Details


13. TS4 3D Eyelashes | M V1 by S-Club

3D Eyelashes | M V1 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I know a ton of guys with lashes longer than mine (a fact I will forever mourn), so there’s no reason your Male Sims can sport some lengthy, luscious lashes of their own.

S-Club’s 3D Eylashes for Males are beautiful little eye wisps that come in three lengths (with several intensities per length).


14. 3D Lashes Uncurled Eyelashes Edition by Kijiko

3D Lashes Uncurled Eyelashes Edition / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Kijiko’s 3D lashes are well-known throughout the TS4 CC community.

I can’t count the number of times I saw a Sim up for download sporting Kijiko’s lashes.

Their 3D Lashes Uncurled Eyelashes Edition is, as the name suggests, a straighter, slightly less wispy version of their classic 3D lashes.

It’s great for adding definition around the eyes without that individual eyelashes effect.


15. Eyebrows Meboo by ennetkasmtt

Eyebrows Meboo / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Custom Alpha CC eyebrows are great if you’re not fond of how clunky and clayified vanilla EA brows are.

Ennetkasmtt’s Meboo brows are, at first glance, quite thick and intense. But their shallow arch and distinct hairs help soften the overall look.


16. Gold M-Eyebrows G6 by GoppolsMe

Gold M-Eyebrows G6 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

GoppolsMe is another fantastic TS4 CC creator that excels in Alpha CC content.

I’m a huge fan of their makeup sets but, lo and behold—they make genetics and face details, too! Their Eyebrows G6 is a strong, lightly feathered brow with a deep tilt and shallow arch.

Available in 45 distinct colors!


17. Enoch Eyebrows by Urielbeaupre

Enoch Eyebrows / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I know I’ve been focusing on Alpha CC that’s as realistic as possible, but these brows are just too cool for me to ignore.

So I’m gonna recommend them here, because I can’t be the only Simmer who likes a little bit of shaved eyebrow action.


Alpha Eyes (Male)


18. Eyes Ultimate Collection by Pralinesims

Eyes Ultimate Collection / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

When Pralinesims says “ultimate,” they mean ultimate.

One glance at the preview photos should tell you everything you need to know about this CC pack.

It’s not just extensive—it’s a full-blown library.

We’re talking 232 files alone… and each file has several variations. It’s a lot, yeah.

But if you want a surefire, one-stop-shop for beautiful Alpha CC eyes, this set is exactly what you’re looking for.


19. EYES-Liam by ANGISSI

EYES-Liam / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

ANGISSI’s Liam eyes are these gorgeous peepers with sharp pupils and mesmerizing lights reflected in the irises.

It comes in twelve earthy colors; most have warm undertones, but there are about four or five swatches with cooler vibes.


20. Ross Eyes Non-Default by BAkalia

Ross Eyes Non-Default / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

These are some of the softest custom eyes I’ve ever come across, and I was pleasantly surprised by how well they translated in-game!

Their simple design is complemented with smooth colors and easy edges.


21. Gold Eyes G11 by GoppolsMe

Gold Eyes G11 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Yeah, GoppolsMe’s pretty much an all-rounder when it comes to CAS.

Their Eyes G11 are a visual treat both in CAS and in-game.

All the colors (twenty, total) look like vibrant, clear crystal. They’re almost hypnotic, in a way!


22. Wolf Eyes by ANGISSI

Wolf Eyes / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

ANGISSI’s Wolf Eyes are actually pretty distinctive.

From for away, they don’t look too unusual. But zoom on in and you’ll see what sets them apart.

They’ve got a fairly large pupil – I’m talking really dilated, here – surrounded by vibrant colors and some light reflections.


Hair + Facial Hair


23. Beard Ultimate Collection by Pralinesims

Beard Ultimate Collection / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

This is another “ultimate” collection from Pralinesims, so buckle up!

It’s a grab bag of 53 different beards (look, length, placement, design, etc.) with their own individual color swatches.

There’s so many of them, the creator had to split this collection up into five parts!


24. Phantom (Alpha Beard) by LEXEL_s

Phantom (Alpha Beard) / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

LEXEL_s’ Phantom beard is just full mountain man—in the best possible way!

It’s thick, it’s full-coverage, and it’s as strong as the jawline it sits on.

One of the comments mentions that there’s no beard quite like this in-game, and I think I agree. If you’re after this style, this one’s a keeper!


25. Beard Style 23 (intense) by Serpentrogue

Beard Style 23 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Don’t let the name intimidate you—this beard isn’t too intense.

It’s too thick to be considered “stubble,” but it’s certainly not at an unreasonable growth.

In fact, I’d say the shape and length is pretty flattering on softer, longer jaws!


26. Pelo Bueno by Wistful Castle

Pelo Bueno / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Do you know how hard it is to find short, curly, Alpha CC hair for Sims 4 Male frames?

There aren’t a lot of options.

In fact, Wistful Castle’s Pelo Bueno leans more towards the Maxis Mix than purely Alpha CC category. However, the curls still have that wonderful, photoskinned quality, so I’m recommending it regardless.


27. Sex Pistols Hairstyle by Obsidian Sims

Sex Pistols Hairstyle / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

This short, spiky, no-nonsense ‘do by Obsidian Sims is not too shabby!

It’s simple yet super flattering, and it adds this earnest sort of vibe to your Sims’ overall look. It comes in a lot of fun colors too.


28. Michael Hairstyle by Anto

Michael Hairstyle / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

This is another hairstyle by Anto that I recommend whenever I can.

Can you blame me? The cornrows, the updo, the buzzed sides, and the two little braided strands at the front? All perfect.

There aren’t a lot of hairs that look and feel quite like this one!


29. WINGS-OS1114 by wingssims

WINGS-OS1114 Alpha Hair / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Don’t let the Female category fool you—this custom ‘do by wingssims is exclusively for Male frames.

WINGS-OS1114 is another incredibly unique piece with shaved sides and stray side bangs.

The main hairstyle is a large, fairly intricate braid that ends in a tiny man bun. It even has a tinier braid running up top! Definitely one-of-a-kind.


30. Hair – Low Perm by MoooD

Hair – Low Perm / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Cute, fluffy, and semi-curly—MoooD’s Low Perm hair looks like a soft cloud!

Some volume on top, wispy strands ‘round the bottom, and wavy bangs that frame the face just so. It’s got a great silhouette and, overall, just looks super appealing.


31. Cornerstone Hair by SonyaSimsCC

Cornerstone Hair for Men (Alpha) / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

This custom hair may not be super unique, but it’s definitely eye-catching!

SonyaSimsCC’s Cornerstone Hair is a neat, slicked-back style with trimmed edges, a slight fade, and some playful bangs. It’s also super versatile!

Depending on the color, it swings between earnest and edgy.


32. Maz Hair by Reina Sims4

Maz Hair / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Here’s a slightly long-ish ‘do with wavy, stray strands and a hastily-done man bun—Reina’s Maz Hair is something to behold!

It’s equal parts casual and stylish, messy but artfully so.

It’s an interesting look, is what I’m trying to say. And I think it’s a great hairstyle that gives Sims a little more character.


33. Fantasy (Male Hair Pack) by Wistful Castle

Fantasy (Male Hair Pack) / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I am flabbergasted that I didn’t find this sooner.

I love fantasy CC regardless of texture, and fantasy hairdos for the Sims 4 are my guilty pleasure. Wistful Castle’s Fantasy (Male Hair Pack) contains four one-of-a-kind hairstyles that – ideally – work for different classes and races.

A neat, no-nonsense cut for the elf, a completely buzzed head for the human paladin, and so on.

It’s a fantastic concept with great execution!


Alpha Clothes (Male)


34. Tweed Shirt by Gorilla Gorilla Gorilla

Tweed Shirt / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Ah, Male clothes. EA’s gotten better at padding up the Male CAS closets, but – as always – a couple extra options never hurt anyone.

This Tweed Shirt by Gorillax3 is stylishly baggy and business-casual. Two descriptors I never thought would work together, and yet here we are.

Available in 15 colors!


35. Mandarin Collar Shirt II by Gorilla Gorilla Gorilla

Mandarin Collar Shirt II / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Gorillax3’s Mandarin Collar Shirt II can make any Sim look successful and regal AF.

It just has that vibe! Pressed fabric, rolled-up sleeves, and neatly-tucked hem? This is an outfit straight out of a K-drama, and I am here for it.


36. Josue Outfit by bluerose-sims

Josue Outfit / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

This two-piece suit is fresh and formal, but not too fancy. I know we have a decent selection of formal wear with the base game and vanilla packs, but the fit and cut of this one feels different. Quality’s really good, too.


37. Male Outfit by Lazy_Eyelids

Male Outfit / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I was originally just going to recommend the turtleneck as it’s something I actually use in my own game. But seeing it paired with the straight pants gave me pause.

I love each piece individually but, together? They certainly create a stylish, preppy outfit that’s worth downloading as whole!


38. Sweater & Fur Jacket S145 by turksimmer

Sweater & Fur Jacket S145 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Need something sharp and fancy for Fall?

Look no further.

Turksimmer’s got something fantastic pieces in their catalog, but nothing else caught my eye quite like this Sweater & Fur Jacket combo.


39. Joseph Jacket by bluerose-sims

Joseph Jacket / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Take your Sim’s outfit from business-formal to total boss with bluerose-sims’ Joseph Jacket. It’s an accessory jacket you can wear with any outfit to casually drape over your Sim’s shoulders, like so.

It gives cool, indifferent vibes in the best way.


40. CC Pack – Feb 2021 by Darte77

Feb 2021 Pack / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Darte77 is perhaps one of the best Alpha CC creators for Male content.

They also release items in sets, which essentially turns all their download pages into exciting variety packs.

Take this CC pack for February 2021; it’s got jeans, a shirt with sunglasses accessory, a bulky combat jacket, and some sleepwear! Talk about variety.


41. CC Pack – October 2021 by Darte77

October 2021 Pack (Male Alpha CC) / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Here’s another fairly extensive CC pack from Darte77.

This one contains, among other things, some denim jeans, a crewneck shirt, and boots with – get this – actual spurs.


42. CC Pack – May 2022 by Darte77

May 2022 Pack with Backpacks / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Attaching a backpack to a shirt mesh is actually so creative and clever, I’m surprised not a lot of creators have done it yet.

It certainly makes for an interesting outfit.

It’s worth noting that the unspoken theme of this CC pack from Darte77 seems to be “tops with backpacks”.


43. Male Outfit (T-Shirt) P32 by busra-tr

Male Outfit (T-Shirt) P32 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Sporty and preppy, busra-tr’s Male Outfit is an interesting ensemble.

Do note that the creator probably uses HQ mods and editing to make the preview photos, so the item in-game definitely doesn’t match the previews. However, rest assured that the actual item’s quality is gorgeous, regardless!


Shoes & Accessories


44. Adidas Gazelle by Darte77

Adidas Gazelle / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

How about some comfortable running shoes for your Sims?

These Adidas Gazelle shoes are an older post from Darte77, but they still work with the latest patch. Plus, they look great in-game!


45. M Platform Canvas Sneakers by bedisfull

M Platform Canvas Sneakers / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

Platform sneakers and shoes with insoles weren’t normalized until the K-wave (Korean music, Korean fashion, etc.).

Now? They’re pretty widespread!

Hey; as a vertically-challenged being myself, I don’t mind. These M Platform Canvas Sneakers from bedisfull look great with rolled-up jeans and denim skinnies.


46. Classic Male Shoes 02 TS4 by IMHO

Classic Male Shoes 02 TS4 / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

These Classic Male Shoes from IMHO are basically really shiny loafers. They’re sharp, they’re sleek, and they look great for office.

These wouldn’t be considered everyday shoes, per se.

But if your Sims practically live at work, they at least look like they’d hold up against wear and tear.


47. Chelsea Boots by Lazy_Eyelids

Chelsea Boots / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

I swear, I think I know about four or five guys IRL who actually own Chelsea boots.

Maybe not this exact style, but I’ve seen them clomping around in suede leather. Lazy_Eyelids’ custom boots, on the other hand, nail the classic, slender Chelsea silhouette to a T!


48. CC Pack – January 2022 by Darte77

January 2022 Pack / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

What can I say? Darte77’s stuff is just so good, I have to recommend it often.

This CC pack from early 2022 contains three pairs of shoes: two kinds of leather sandals and some simple Adidas runners.

Just a chill, casual selection for some good ol’ closet staples.


49. Leather Shoes (Male) by ShakeProductions

Leather Shoes / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

If your Sims’ footwear is getting repetitive, why not spice up the CAS folders with these rich, thick-soled loafers?

I’m not sure if the chunky bottoms are par for the course with shoes like these, but the visual it creates is certainly appealing!


50. Leather Sandals (Male) by ShakeProductions

Leather Sandals / Sims 4 CC

Check Out This CC

And here we’ve got a pair of thick leather sandals (still from ShakeProductions).

These handpainted originals look sturdy, practical, and are available in 15 colors. Mostly warm neutrals, but I guess that color range is to be expected given the “leather” in the name.
