A tartan plaid wool bow-tie and cummerbund is a stylish and traditional accessory that adds a touch of heritage and sophistication to formal and casual attire. The tartan plaid pattern is characterized by horizontal and vertical stripes in different colors and widths, forming a distinctive checkered design. Each tartan plaid pattern is associated with a specific Scottish clan or region, representing their heritage and history. The colors and arrangement of the stripes can vary, creating a wide variety of tartan designs. The wool fabric provides warmth and texture to the bow tie and cummerbund. It adds a cozy and tactile element to the accessory, making it suitable for cooler seasons or events in colder climates. They add a touch of personality and uniqueness to a formal ensemble. Cummerbunds serve both a functional and aesthetic purpose. They are primarily designed to cover the waistband area between the shirt and trousers, creating a polished and seamless look. Additionally, they help maintain a neat appearance by concealing the gaps that might otherwise be visible when wearing a formal dinner jacket. Unlike pre-tied bow ties, a self-tied bow-tie requires manual tying. This allows for a customized fit and creates a charming and authentic look. It provides an opportunity for personalization and adds a touch of craftsmanship to your ensemble. Shown in Red Tartan Plaid Wool and made in America.
