The Hallmarks of a Quality Cummerbund

  • Quality Fabric
  • Quality Interlining
  • Quality Thread
  • Quality Closure

 

 

Our Pure Silk Cummerbund in Black is a pleated waist sash perfect for wearing with your single-breasted tuxedo or jacket. Worn with a bow tie and adjusting to size as they do, traditionally they were black which of course remains the classic option. You can order a small fabric sample first, or you can simply add the it to your basket.

What differentiates ours from the rest? The quality of the materials we use to construct it and the workmanship we put into it. We truly believe that you should not only look and feel good in your Silks & Crystals purchase, but that you should also have an understanding of what makes it special as well! Your journey to own one of the finest begins here...Hand Made in the Scottish Highlands, especially for you!

Some factors to consider when making a Cummerbund purchase: 

The Material
The material of your cummerbund uses the finest pure silk fabrics, from one of the world leaders, James Hare. 

Interlining
We take the interlining as seriously as we take the shell and use a quality wool interlining which also gives body where required.

Thread
We use 100% pure silk thread in the construction of your accessory. Investing in a quality thread is important; it's what holds your accessory together after all!

Stitching
We stitch your cummerbund using a mixture of hand stitching and domestic sewing machine stitching.

Closure
The closure should be strong enough to remain closed without coming loose as you move but should not however, be out of proportion in weight to the garment. We use hook and loop to provide a secure fastening or sliders depending on the structure.

Embellishment
Why not have yours embellished with crystals from Swarovski®?...email or call us to discuss your requirements.

We offer a Sample Service where you can order a small piece of the fabric(s) before buying. It's important to us that you are going to love your purchase. You may equally be happy with the colours and fabrics as you see them on our website. An image can never convey the true look and feel of this truly beautiful, natural, and hypo-allergenic fabric. You are also welcome to visit our Studio which at present is by appointment only, where you can browse through all the James Hare fabric samples at your leisure.

Some Cummerbund Snippets...

Traditionally made in silk, originating in Asia around 1850 and adopted by the British whilst under Colonial Rule! Originating from the Persian word 'Kamarband' which refers to anything belt like; 'kamar' meaning 'loins' and 'band' meaning 'sash'. When wearing your tuxedo, the importance is in immaculate presentation and an eye for detail! A cummerbund is a waist covering which prevents your shirt from making an appearance below your jacket buttons. Wearing one forms a 'V' shape above the button line of the jacket, broadening your chest, elongating your legs and tidying your frame.

You don't have to wear one with your tuxedo but you could wear a waistcoat if not. Never wear both! You could opt contemporary and wear neither. If you opt for a coloured cummerbund, do not match it with your bow tie; keep you bow black and vice versa!

The pleats were originally a functional part whereby men could store tickets and other small items. Your pleats should always face up the way. Traditionally black to match your jacket, trousers and bow tie, but colour has found its way now too. Do not wear a matching bow tie (except black of course); you will be compromising it integrity! The curve of your cummerbund compliments a tuxedo with a shawl collar while the points of a waistcoat compliment a peaked tuxedo lapel. If you wear braces, they can be worn with either a cummerbund or waistcoat, but stick to black or white.

 

Silks & Crystals Made with Love for You

We are a micro-sized family run business and not a large mass-producing company. All the accessories we make are made with our customer at the heart of it. When we make your accessories, they are made with love and care to deliver a quality result for you. Some items may take about 4 hours to make, others several days...

When we embellish our products, we do it in a 'less is more' way, using only the finest and smallest, crystals from Swarovski® AG. They simply accentuate, the stunningly beautiful pure silk fabrics we use from James Hare, for which they are, and have been, so famous since 1865. A story of small beginnings with nothing but experience, and understanding of the needs of the tailoring trade, James Hare began the business alone, distributing cloth purchased from small weavers.

If you would like a fabric sample before making your purchase, we have made this available to you on all relevant products. Simply take the SAMPLE option from the drop-down menus on the fabric products and we will be delighted to send this to you. It's important to us that you know exactly what you are buying, before you buy. If you already know, please feel free to simply purchase.

Many products are ready to ship within 48 hours, with many others not taking much longer. Obviously there are busy times of the year such as Christmas and the wedding season, when items may take a little longer but you will be kept updated in the unlikely event of significant delays. The key is to order in plenty of time before you need the item, especially if its for a gift or special occasion. That's not to say we haven't produced a white rabbit or two when required, so...if in doubt, please just ask us anyway.

You can also choose to have your item gift boxed (and sent direct to your recipient) if you're planning a surprise for someone special. Don't know what to choose? Not sure about colour? You could purchase one of our Gift Vouchers and let them choose themselves.
