Need assistance from our sartorial experts

I'm trying to track down a legitimate waistcoat for a tux. My wife's cousin is getting married in October, and it's a black tie event. I've managed to track down a reasonable evening coat and pants off eBay (Ralph Lauren 2 button with satin faced peak lapel collar) and I've got my black silk tie. However, I'm at a loss for a real waist covering. I'm able to find cummerbunds reasonably cheaply, but I've never been a huge fan of them and I plan to wear suspenders, so I'd like to track down a full backed waistcoat like the "rare" one pictured on this page. The problem is, I can only seem to locate business suit style high button vests, or backless vests made for rental. Anyone have any leads?
