Braces, Cummerbund or both?

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys,

    First time poster in these parts and well theres a ball i'll be attending tomorrow and i'm yet to decide to whether to wear a tux with braces, a cummerbund or both?

    Any suggestions?

    Much love x

    In answer to the question, personally, I wouldn't wear either. I think they both look a bit old fashioned and 'middle aged'.

    Wear both if that's what you have, but I'd wear a waistcoat if I were you.

    Braces are a way to hold up the trousers. A cummerbund or waistcoat cover the waist; their purposes are not the same.

    I have a minor obsession with braces, I think they look fantastic (on the right guys obviously)
