Lend a little military style to your black-tie uniform with a Hilditch & Key cummerbund. We have three black silks for your inspection: satin, velvet, and barathea. Made in England by our bow tie suppliers, our cummerbunds are a key component of our dresswear collection.
Like many British style traits, this accoutrement was borrowed from the Asian subcontinent after visiting Army officers found the Indian sash – or ‘kamarband’ – to be comfier than traditional waistcoats for evening wear. Our modern version is padded for comfort and designed to sit perfectly on the waist – half above and half below – with help from elasticated fastenings and a convenient button eye.
Please note: wearing a cummerbund with pleats facing downwards is a faux pas worthy of passing port to the right. Luckily, ours are pleated upwards: this not only helps catch errant crumbs but also doubles as a handy place to hold tickets. So, sashay in style this season.
