Using texture referencing with clothing saves space and, unlike copypasting, keeps the clarity of the original texture. It even saves some time, since you only have to create one project and import it as many times as you need.

It only works properly on clothes that use meshes with the same/similar mapping, so it's usually used with age and sometimes gender conversion.

What you'll need:

Files you want to texture reference from
Base files to copy via bodyshop
Knowledge of how to make bodyshop recolours
SimPE

For my example, I am making a TF top that texture references one of Bruno's t-shirts on HP's t-shirt mesh. The mesh I'm using is my fixed version of Migamoo's TF t-shirt.

Definitions--
Referenced file: the file that contains the textures another file references. In this case, it's an AF t-shirt by Bruno.
Referencing file: the file that takes its textures from another. In this case, it's a TF t-shirt.
