CummerbundsBy Dinner suit team
A cummerbund is a broad waist sash that originated from the British military when officers stationed in India used them as an alternative to heavier waistcoats. Now-a-days they are an integral accessory to the dinner suit. In general cummerbunds tend to be pleated and often worn with single-breasted dinner jackets. You are able to buy cummerbunds in a variety of colours however the two most common colours are black and burgundy.
