I bought these hot pants (aka booty shorts) in 1985, at a trendy store in Lenox Mall in Atlanta, Georgia. I wore them to play Helga, the Kit-Kat girl, in a college production of "Cabaret" (check out the photo collage to see the shorts in action).
They didn't see any other wear, and have been in a suitcase in a closet for 35 years, hanging out with other memorabilia. Alas, my booty shorts days are well and truly over, so they're up for grabs.
Zebra print was huge in the 80s, during the whole "new wave" music era.
