More about Rocola Cummerbunds…

As part of the Rocola Eveningwear range, in addition to Rocola Evening Shirts and Rocola Silk Bow Ties, we also carry Rocola's wonderful pure silk cummerbund.

The Rocola cummerbund is a fabulous black pure silk broad sash garment worn around the waist, and is the ideal and perfect way to finish off your eveningwear attire. In fact the cummerbund is usually standard attire for black tie events when a waistcoat is not being worn.

It is made from 100% pure silk, and feels exquisite to the touch, and looks delightfully elegant. The Rocola Cummerbund is pleated horizontally and has no patterning. It comes in one size for all, as it is ribbon tied at the back of the waist.

The Rocola Silk Cummerbund is available in black only.

Origins of the cummerbund…

The cummerbund, which is also sometimes known as a waistband, originates from military dress uniform worn by British Military Officers in colonial India around the time of the 17th century where it was worn as a more comfortable alternative to the waistcoat, particularly in the warmer months of the year.

Its use filtered through to civilian wear in later years where it would be worn as eveningwear in the summer months along with informal dinner jackets.

The word itself is actually of Persian origin and composition, consisting of 'Kamar' (meaning waist), and 'band' and became part of the English language in the 17th century from languages of the Indian subcontinent such as Hindi and Urdu.

Cummerbunds are still extensively worn as part of military dress uniform by both the Pakistan and Indian armies, where they are known as a cummerband and worn together with a leather belt.

I need a Tuxedo to go with my Rocola Eveningwear Cummerbund, can Sanders Menswear help?

Yes, we certainly can!

At Sanders Menswear we carry an extensive range of mens formal suit hire wear in our Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire menswear shops, which includes an extensive collection of mens evening wear hire featuring black Tuxedo's / Dinner Suits / Dinner Jackets as well as white Tuxedo's from the stunning and award-winning Peter Posh Formal Suit Hire range.

Mens Formal Eveningwear to hire or buy!

If you think you're only likely to require a tuxedo for just one upcoming occasion you may have on the cards, then it probably makes good sense to simply hire your eveningwear from us.

However, it could make good economic sense to purchase your tuxedo / dinner suit from us if you think you may have extra opportunities in the future to wear formal eveningwear, in which case you'll be pleased to know that you can also buy evening suits from us as well.
