Ty Karnitz: Bring Back the Codpiece!

At The Art of Manliness, Ty Karnitz makes the case for reviving the codpiece as a modern, manly fashion:

Any man boldly sporting a codpiece as he walks into a room will instantly gain everyone’s full attention. But remember, the codpiece is supposed to accentuate and not dominate, so even though everyone is likely to be staring at you, keep the focus on them. Maintain eye contact and talk about others. Following those simple rules will also help draw a lady’s attention.

Karnitz includes pictures of modern codpieces. What do you think? Does the codpiece deserve another chance as a popular fashion?

If women can have cleavage, men should be able to have... bulgeage (or something). Only seems fair.

Mark my words: this will be fashionable. Some day. In the future.

(It already was, so don't say I'm delirious.)

(Come to think of it, it's already "hip" (or whatever) for men to have their ass hanging out of their pants, so I really don't understand how those rappers (or gangsterz or whatever) have not yet gotten on to this. This may come sooner than you think. !)
