Medium Weight Samue Jacket

(5 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.

    I love this jacket. So comfortable.

    I have purchased four of these, regular and lightweight. On a practical level it is so comfortable! The fabric is sturdy and stands up well to frequent laundry cycles. I am a big guy so it is roomy without being baggy. It is also very professional looking and blends in well with blue nurse scrubs. I have spent the past six months wearing one every day and I couldn’t be happier with them! Personally, wearing samue is a constant reminder that I am doing work for spiritual benefit, they are indeed vestments for my vocation. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. I will be purchasing more throughout my career!

    I am 5’7″ and large around. I bought a large. The fit is very comfortable, loose but not excessively baggy. It fits well when worn alone or over a tshirt. The sleeves cover my arms, but stay out of the way of any work I am doing with my hands. The fabric is nice and heavy, which feels good for doing work in. The heavy cloth acts similar to a shop apron when doing heavy work.

    Recently bought Medium Weight Samue Jackets in Black, Walnut Brown and Indigo colors. Very happy with the jackets, extremely comfortable, durable and amazing looking. Highly recommend them.
    Fabric: The fabric has a nice feel to it, these jackets do not feel warm or hot in summer indoor/outdoor use.
    Color: All three are beautiful vibrant dark colors, pictures give a different impression.
    Stitching: Strong stitching, excellent design and craftsmanship.
    Size: Loose not baggy, ample room in the right places, very comfortable whether sitting/lying on the floor/sofa.
    Wash: Prefer to machine wash them on gentle cycle in cold water and air dry them on hangers. These jackets wash and wear well.
