I purchased a black sumu-e and am delighted. This is a really beautiful made garment. I only wish you offered matching pants!

I do geophysical hazards research, and work in an office with a lot of computers. It's always too cool for humans :). The black Samue is perfect to keep me comfortable while at my desk. The elastic cuffs keep it from getting snagged on things while working, and it is loose enough to fit over other clothing without being binding. I try to sit at least once during the day, and it works great for that. I ordered both the denim and black; the denim might be ok in Winter sitting, but is a bit heavy for regular use. Also, the denim sleeves are open (no elastic) and snag. Will probably order another black one.

I just got my order today, and like always I'm very pleased... this samue is lighter than the denim samue and is nice to wear! Great!
