Codpiece, pouchlike addition to men’s long hose, located at the crotch, popular in Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries. It came into fashion with hose that were like tights and continued to be worn with breeches.

An earlier, narrower form of codpiece, worn with a belt or a loincloth, was the basic fashion for men in the Aegean area during the Bronze Age. The codpiece did not reemerge in Europe as a significant component of men’s dress until the 15th century. Before then, European men’s fashions were relatively open at the groin area, which was covered by the tunic or doublet. The codpiece was created to address this issue as men’s hemlines rose during the 15th century.
