Befuddled by the cummerbund? (And yes, that’s right. We might still say “cumberbun,” but that’s not how it’s spelled!) Here’s a step by step guide to how to put on and wear a cummerbund, an essential piece of the tuxedo.
A cummerbund is worn with a bow tie for a completed tux look. This allows you to show off those cool studs in your shirt. And remember: the pleats go up.
Also, for another style tip, if you are worried about your thicker waist, opt for a vest instead. Cummerbunds can tend to accentuate, rather than cover up, your waist.
