Freebase

  1. Bands

    Bands are a form of formal neckwear, worn by some clergy and lawyers, and with some forms of academic dress. They take the form of two oblong pieces of cloth, usually though not invariably white, which are tied to the neck. Bands is usually plural because they require two similar parts and did not come as one piece of cloth. Those worn by clergy are often called preaching bands, tabs or Geneva bands; those worn by lawyers are called barrister's bands or, more usually in Canada, tabs. Ruffs were popular in the sixteenth century, and remained so till the late 1640s, alongside the more fashionable standing and falling bands. Ruffs, like bands, were sewn to a fairly deep neck-band. They could be either standing or falling ruffs. Standing ruffs were common with legal, and official dress till comparatively late. Falling ruffs were popular c.1615-40s.

Examples of bands in a Sentence

  1. John Hospers:

    By far the most numerous and most flagrant violations of personal liberty and individual rights are performed by governments. The major crimes throughout history, the ones executed on the largest scale, have been committed not by individuals or bands of individuals but by governments, as a deliberate policy of those governments, that is, by the official representatives of governments, acting in their official capacity.

  2. Jessie Holeva:

    Watches are the number one symbol of luxury, so for Apple to create a watch that fits both tech and luxury is brilliant, it is nice to see leather and metal wrist band options, which makes the watch less sporty and more glam.I love that there are so many different customizable metal options, and I especially fell for the rose gold. The different types of bands are great for those who prefer a more sleek style watch to those who want a more classic feel. Although I don't go for the sporty styles, it is similar to brands like Toy that make watches poolside-ready with a rubber band.

  3. Sir Thomas Beecham:

  4. Nadia Comaneci:

    The fascinating thing for us to bring home to Romania was bubble gum, coloured socks and coloured hair clips. These were things we did n’t have in Romania at the time, we only had white socks in Romania. But when I used to come back from the States, I used to bring back pink and yellow socks with all kind of designs, and hair clips and elastic bands for the ponytail that had colourful designs.

  5. Allison Chinchar:
