Samue Wear
Traditional Japanese
house working wear
Color: dark blue
grey green
Kimono is unpractical to work due to the long shape however samue was made as working wear. Pants style is more practical to work. This samue is for all year around except hot summer,
we have jinbei for the hot summer that is made with thin material to get wind. Probably you have seen it in a street in summer night.
To wear this kind of traditional outfit you don't need to wear traditional Japanese slipper (zori) or wooden sandal (geta) but you can just wear your sneakers. I have seen a Brazilian aikido teacher who was wearing samue with white scarf as a casual wear, it was very fashionable.
To wear kimono a long belt
called "obi" is necessary however for samue you don't need to tie up obi but you just tie first inside of string (it is invisible from the outside) then tie up again at the side of your right.
The shape is fixed by tie up in two different spots.
In case not tie up inside,
the upper part of samue won't be straigt.
Wearing T-shit is also a nice way to wear samue to protect from cold temperature.
Especially matching color goes well rather than an underwear looking white.

Samurai official style:

Komono + vest + hakama wide pants.

With wide pants samurai can't run fast.
It is more show the class.
Wearing vest means he is a high class samourai.
In Edo era everybody followed the wearing rule strictly.
All human beings have same body, only the costume makes difference of class.

Look at our Samurai traditional pantarone, it looks nice however too much material, you can't really move quickly enough.
Samue can be used for casual wear for daily use. It is light,
can fit directly putting on your body or on your shirt for cold temperature.
