I have the same issue and the other bug too, the work outfit in the CAS is not unlocked after the update in all my households.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I can confirm that StrangerVille fixes this issue. The scientists look very neat in their new uniforms from the GP. I hope the team doesn't take them away when they fix the bug for everyone.

Now that I have StrangerVille, all the NPCs are wearing the white lab coats. This is acceptable, but I wonder if it is a permanent fix or if the blue coats are coming back. My character already had the final work uniform unlocked (mad scientist?) and has always worn the correct uniform.
I prefer the blue coats, but the white ones look good too, and way better than random clothes. Thanks!

I have the Strangerville pack installed, and I still have the issue in the detective career where all the offices are wearing the hat, but have cross-gender everyday clothing (i.e. males wearing female and vice versa). Not tried the other active careers yet.
I’m afraid, but this is totally unacceptable. People shouldn’t be forced to buy Strangerville in order to fix this bug. I hope ea does something and quickly as much as for the problem with the pets impossible to lecture and the terrain tools disapperead. This is the third unfixed bug I have to deal with thanks to broken patches.
