      I've seen a few houppes that appear to have an opening all the way down
      center front, but not worn opened. A good example of this would be this one
      - http://pics.livejournal.com/generys/pic/0000558z. It's from folio 127 of
      manuscript 598 at the Bibliotheque National de France. I *think* it's
      something by Boccacio, but when I scanned it I just noted folio and
      manuscript #'s.
