Kyoto Collection Samue Jacket NEW!

(5 customer reviews)


SKU: samue-pant-1-1 Category:


Our Kyoto Collection Samue Jackets are made from our new 100% lightweight cotton Japanese fabric. These jackets will last a lifetime. Samue (or Samu-e or Samu-gi) is traditionally the work jacket for a Buddhist monk or nun in Japan. And it looks great on anyone. Wear it to the meditation hall, the dojo, around town or working in the garden. The fit is quite roomy. The samue closes with ties and you’ll find it has a zippered outside pocket and a hidden inside pocket. Our samue is pre-shrunk, so it’s machine washable. And like all of our clothing, it’s made right here in Seattle. Whatever your line of work happens to be, we think you’ll love doing it in this jacket.

These match our Kyoto Samue pants, we invite you to feel free to mix and match. There might be a slight difference in the dye lots.

“Samu” means “work practice” in a Zen community – these are the garment of choice for Japanese monks and nuns when they are not sitting in meditation doing the work of the day. That said, we think they look and feel great in the meditation hall. And whatever your line of work happens to be, we think you’ll love doing it in this jacket.

Our Samue Jackets come in three colors:  Kyoto Midnight, which is a charcoal weave; Kyoto Morning, a light grey weave, and Kyoto Blue, a blue weave.
