Samue are normally worn by Japanese Buddhist monks. It is a centuries old traditional form of workwear made of cotton or linen usually indigo or brown in colour. I bought this in Japan from the wife's favourite granny shop or as she would prefer to call it, a 'traditional Japanese goods shop'. I wear the trousers at home during summer because they are light and very comfortable. I like wearing the top over a T-shirt when I am out and about. Summers in London are usually changeable and sometimes the wind is still a bit cold so I need something to cut the chill.
