    i would appreciate some advice...i am getting married in august and have decided on a tux, single breasted, peak lapel, bow tie...but the question has come up what to wear with it a cummerbund or a vest...now i havent seen any relatively young man wear a cummerbund in a long time and high end places such as richards in ct, arent even showing vests for the summer b/c the salesman said its too hot to wear them and so they dont really offer them, during the summer its more of a fall thing...has anyone heard about this? what do i wear? any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    It's purely a matter of personal preference. You can get wild fabrics or very staid fabrics for either vests or cumberbunds. Vests will be warmer, of course. Think about the pictures too - -taken by your photographer and by your guests. Which will look better in photos? You're guaranteed to take off your jacket at some point too, once the dancing gets going.
