Many men have turned against the cummerbund these days, thinking it another useless complication to the entire process of dressing for the evening. The photo, a crop of one of Hanneli Mustaparta's taken at a Tom Ford event, illustrates the unfortunate consequences of a low rise trouser worn without a waist covering.
The sin of exposed shirt front, often compounded by a garish belt buckle, can be avoided with high rise trousers if a cummerbund is just too much to bear. But cover your waist.
