    When my single button jacket is worn closed, it seems that you can not see what's under the jacket. Does it matter if you wear a cumberbund in this case?

    I can still see my cummerbund. Probably your quarter is too closed?,

    One generally doesn't have the jacket buttoned that much, mostly unbuttoned. you need to cover up the 5th button at the waist plus cummberbund or vest completes the outfit. Unless you have mother of pearl buttons and aren't using studs ( which is't really as formal looking ).
