A codpiece (from Middle English: cod , meaning “scrotum”) is a covering flap or pouch that attaches to the front of the crotch of men’s trousers and usually accentuates the genital area. It was held closed by string ties, buttons, or other methods. It was an important item of European clothing in the 15th and 16th centuries, and is still worn in the modern era in performance costumes for rock music and metal musicians and in the leather subculture.

Just sharing an outfit that I coordinated with my Batgirl shirt this weekend. I don’t usually shop at Old Navy, but upon stopping by the store on a whim a few months ago, I ended up grabbing this shirt, a Supergirl emblem shirt, and a Jurassic Park shirt (for AK) on sale for under $20 altogether!
