Codpieces had their start in a rather unglamorous way: humans had simply not yet invented pants. What began as a practical means for modesty, however, soon became a symbol of virility and strength, and designers of codpieces strived to outdo each other in their architecture.
This RP Leather Codpiece carries a bit of that spirit, and grounds and centers it into something more timeless—as well as genderless. Symbolic, geometric, simultaneously ancient and modern, the masterful craftsmanship is apparent in this piece.
Vintage stamped leather, beautifully hand-sewn with sturdy ties, runs alongside gleaming black snakeskin. Flattering and balanced leather fringes hang from each hip, and a one-of-a-kind vintage brass hand adorns the side buckle, bringing a magician’s touch to this mysterious piece. The cup is clothing-as-architecture, velvet-lined for comfort.
More than a mere accessory, this statement piece becomes an instant heirloom. It was tooled years ago, especially for a ritual performance. Its artistry undeniable, the RP Leather Codpiece is ready to add to your own mystery and power.
