The cummerbund is an element that completes a black-tie look and is ideal for a formal event or important ceremony. In fact, one of the rules of black-tie attire is to wear garments with ""covered"" details, from the shirt buttons to the outer stitching of the tuxedo, to the trouser closure that is perfectly concealed by the cummerbund at the waist.
A tuxedo worn with a cummerbund, along with a matching bow tie and a shirt with covered buttons, creates the ultimate evening look. It is an excellent alternative to the vest to give a unique touch of elegance and exude class and distinction. The cummerbund also slims the figure and adds an essential finishing touch to the ensemble.
Trousers that are part of this classic look are best worn with suspenders, rather than a belt, that would show as a bump under the cummerbund. When choosing this accessory, it is better to opt for basic colors like black and white, to match with all the other details.
Boggi Milano cummerbunds are made of pure silk and come in colors perfect for matching to create a unique ensemble.
