What is a cummerbund

A cummerbund is an accessory worn around your waist, usually in combination with formal evening wear such as a dinner jacket. It is a wide band usually made of satin silk or satin polyester. A cummerbund has an adjustable fastener at the back, making it easy to adjust the size.

Traditionally, a cummerbund has pleats at the front that point downwards. This design serves to hide the seam between the jacket and trousers, creating a neat and streamlined look. The cummerbund is normally worn over the white dress shirt and under the tuxedo jacket.

Besides the practical function of hiding the seam, a cummerbund also adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the formal outfit. It can add a touch of colour or serve as an accent to complete the overall look. 

Wear a cumberband ukWhen to wear a cummerbund

A cummerbund is an accessory worn with formal evening wear, such as a dinner jacket. In most cases, a cummerbund is worn in the colour of the dinner jacket and is made of a satin-like material.

You wear a cummerbund in combination with a dinner jacket and especially during gala dinners, weddings, operas black -or white-tie events.

Of course, wearing a cummerbund is also a matter of personal style and preference. Although it is traditionally associated with certain formal events, it is not strictly necessary to wear one. It is always still best to research the dress code of the event in question to determine whether a cummerbund is an appropriate accessory.

Combining a cummerbund

A cummerbund can be combined in various ways to create a stylish and formal look. Here are some tips for combining a cummerbund.

  • With a dinner jacket: Wear the cummerbund over the white dinner jacket shirt and under the tuxedo jacket. Make sure the pointed side of the cummerbund points up and the pleats point down. Choose a cummerbund that matches the colour of your dinner jacket or a contrasting colour for a striking effect.
  • With a bow tie or tie: Pair the cummerbund with a matching bow tie or tie for a harmonious look. Make sure the colours and patterns match well. A plain cummerbund can go well with a striped or checked tie, while a structured cummerbund can work well with a plain tie. In short, keep your look calm.
  • Matching accessories: To complete your outfit, combine the cummerbund with other matching accessories, such as a pocket square, cufflinks, or a tie pin. Make sure the accessories match in colour and style to create a coordinated look.

Excellent tie, silky soft material and extra long as advertised. Allows taller folk to tie knots that use more length.

Thrilled with the tie….absolutely perfect colour and quality. Service and delivery were without fault. About to order two further ties!

Excellent service and quality. I ordered replacement leather ends for braces. They arrived within a few days and I am very satisfied.
Sometimes the quality of on line purchases is not what is claimed. This company seems to be honest and what it says is what you get.
Thanks

I attend many motorsport awards yearly and wanted some braces that were in fitting. These were just prefect.
Quality is of the highest standard and beautifully made. Very pleased with my purchase.
Order process was simple, delivered in a timely manner and communication was good.
I’d highly recommended and would definitely order again in future.

I ordered a pair of braces for my husband as part of his Christmas gift. He was over the moon with them and they are of really lovely quality. The colours in the two-tone set I chose go really well together and he\'s already worn them multiple times over the holidays. Delivery was also very quick!
