I have just found my tuxedo, a Paul Stuart peak lapel (satin I think), one button, single breasted, ventless number. I now need to accessorize. b/c I am a portly fellow, I think the option to go Daniel Craig style won't work for me. I need either a cummerbund or waistcoat, and am leaning towards waistcoat. question is, if I take of my jacket and am dancing, will a backless waistcoat look bad? should I only focus on waistcoats with a back, and if so, wear do I go about buying one? I have about 6 months to shop so would rather not pay full retail, but if I must I will. also, black or white? all silk is ok? I assume cotton pique or grosgrain is out, b/c it should match the lapels? I am in Boston, have looked at Keezars, that's actually where the tux is from 10/31 update: I am still looking for a waistcoat, and found this new RLPL waistcoat on ebay, and I really like the styling, and it's in my budget. I really don't want to spend hundreds or more on my waist, but $150 or so is fine however, it is silk grosgrain, and my lapels are NOT grosgrain. how large of a crime would wearing this with my tuxedo be?
