The Cummerbund

The cummerbund is the vintage equivalent of the modern day vest. This garment is essentially a sash that goes around the waist and really helps to show off a thin and fit waist line. The tux cummerbund also does a great job transistioning the tux shirt and the tuxedo pants in a seamless fashion.

Today most people choose the vest over the cummerbund. However, if you would like to wear the cummerbund over the vest anyway keep reading and I will provide you with some tips.

The first detail you should look at is the width of the cummerbund. Always make sure that the width is atleast 4 to 5 inches or your cummerbund will look more like a belt than a sash.

Colors should be subdued and should blend well with the tux. Use the bowtie or cufflinks for focal points if you must but never use the cummerbund.

Move from the cummerbund back to tuxedo accessories.
