Why wear braces?
Whether you’re attending a casual or formal event, braces (also known as suspenders) are a traditional and practical method of holding up a man’s trousers (or pants, as many call them). Braces are often said to be more comfortable for men and they also prevent the trousers from… becoming untidy. They are a fashion must-have for formal attire, especially tuxedos and it’s widely regarded wrong to wear both braces and a belt at the same time (well, they do the same thing, after all).
When to wear a cummerbund?
The cummerbund dates back to 1850 and is an essential tuxedo accessory. So why wear a cummerbund? The purpose of a cummerbund is to hide the area where your shirt is tucked into your trousers and makes your attire look overall tidier. How should I wear a cummerbund? The way to wear… a cummerbund is to have the folds facing up. This is because, traditionally, the cummerbund was also designed to catch crumbs in the folds. The cummerbund is reserved for formal attire and events, such as a balls, dinners, galas, and formal weddings.
