Today in Paris, Rick Owens might have finally uncovered the one part of the body that hasn’t yet been shown by cutouts: the groin.

Several of the models walking his runway wore draped, dress- and tunic-like garments which had fabric missing from the one part of the body that, one would think, a guy would want to keep covered up.

The strategically draped holes were low enough to keep the men mostly modest, but it is easy to imagine a breeze whipping up, and the wearer receiving a summons for indecent exposure.

On the other hand, some might argue that there’s no better way to show your manhood than by showing your manhood. These clothes hearken back to the days when monarchs such as King Henry VIII never left the house without a giant, imposing codpiece between the legs.

Click through the slideshow to see the garments in questions as well as the rest of the line, which features double-breasted coats and plenty of Kanye-friendly, seemingly scifi-inspired looks.
