I don't know what the Vulcan shorts look like but they can't possibly be worse than the Edo manslut shorts so I'll go with them.
You probably don't remember, but the younger men and boys didn't wear the "mankini." They wore shorts and went shirtless. Their shorts
are longer than the Vulcans'
(which came up to the crotch, it seems), but are very tight in the rear, have a high slit up the sides, and dip down in the middle.
The question is still:
Would you rather fall in love with a Klingon, a Cardassian or a Changeling?
