Well, perhaps so. But StyFo is like that. Don't expect praise for an incomplete rig, especially if you call attention to it. A cummerbund is inexpensive. Its purpose is to cover the waistband of your trousers. A waistcoat will do the same job. If you don't want to wear either, get a double-breasted dinner jacket. It's not difficult to do it correctly.
alright alright, I just scooped up a cummerbund on ebay. no more bickering. I'm still gonna pop bottles like a waiter though
