Medium Weight Samue Jacket

(31 customer reviews)


SKU: samue-jacket Category:


Our Medium Weight Samue Jacket is a stylish jacket that 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. This is our medium weight 100% cotton jacket, and comes in either dark brown or navy blue. 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.

    Best samue I’ve found yet. Actually usable for work and practice. Comfortable, durable material. Elegantly made but clearly hard wearing. Even in Japan this type of samue are difficult to find. Lots of cheap flimsy synthetic fabric lounge wear marketed as samue all over the internet. Avoid these expensive trappings and buy from Still Sitting. Packaged with care, stitching is impeccable. Sizes run large, but this is mostly a concern with the pants, at my 34w 31inseam, I tried size “small” – they fit perfect 👌

    (Edited to include size)
    Great material, design and production.
    Too expensive (but I think everything is too expensive)
    I’m 5’11”, 205 lbs, ordered a large, and I think the arms and legs are too short. Perhaps that’s the way these fit normally?

    This samu-e is much thicker than expected and quite heavy. I’m currently in residence at a zen center and I can say this is much thicker than the samu-e one might order off Amazon and also much thicker than most of the samu-e residents make for themselves. I was surprised when I got it, but am warming up to it — literally. You might only want a lightweight one if you’re practicing in a zendo with central heating.

    I can say the quality of manufacturing is excellent, and I do recommend spending the extra for this over the lounge wear samu-e sold online.

    The sizing is accurate. I am 5’6 and 130LBs, and a small fits about as I would like.

    This is pretty much all I wear. They are awesome.
