    Hi, would an ascot tie go with a cummerbund by any chance?

    I usually associate cummerbunds with black tie, in which case an ascot would be inappropriate.

    In American usage, there are two types of ascot, the formal ascot, normally only worn with morning attire at costume-y weddings, and the casual ascot, the kind that tucks into a shirt. Neither is appropriate with a cummerbund, which is strictly tuxedo wear and mated with a bowtie, preferably black.
