1980s Silk Cummerbund and Bow Tie

 

 


In our book, black tie doesn't always mean a 'black' tie. Especially if you're the kind of guy who likes to a) stand out from the crowd, or b) go against the grain. Whatever the motive that floats your boat, this lively cummerbund and matching bow tie will get you noticed among the formal set.  Silk charmeuse in a floral print of almost every color in the garden on a white ground, the cummerbund is pleated and tapers to the back with an adjustable elastic keeper, lining is solid black silk.  The length of the bow tie is adjustable with a slide.  Yes, you will need to learn to tie a bow tie if you don't already know how, but if we managed a decent knot it around Dick's neck here, you can too. Both pieces are in excellent condition. Cummerbund is  5" wide, and will fit  a waist from 28" to 48" or more due to the stretch of the elastic.Bow tie is 36" long and can be shortened to 33" with the slide. $115
