Chameleoh: The World's First Transformative Shorts For Men

£7,360

What makes a great pair of shorts?

It’s hard for guys to find a pair of shorts that are comfortable, stylish, good quality, practical and affordable. There’s always a compromise. 

Even if you’ve found your perfect pair, eventually you’ll get bored of them or they just become dated after a while.


Look no further

Chameleoh shorts are the first of its kind. They’re the most comfortable shorts that allow you to transform your look instantly depending on your environment and style needs. 

Just zip on a new sleeve design at a fraction of the price of buying a new pair of shorts, without compromising on quality or fit.

We're launching with a choice of black shorts or white shorts, and over 35 sleeve designs to match.  

Each pair of shorts comes with matching plain colour sleeves. 

You can wear the shorts in 3 different lengths

  •  Short: no sleeves
  •  Mid-length: sleeves rolled up
  •  Full-length: sleeves unrolled

Transform your look from day-to-night seamlessly by zipping on some new sleeve designs.

Comfort is key and is one of the main points we have focused on. Whilst we’ve given a lot of attention to the detail of the design, quality and manufacturing, our aim is to make sure that the shorts feel good when you put them on.

For this reason we knew we had to start with comfort and to make sure the fabric is strong yet feels soft.  

After months of searching and comparing weaves of fabrics from countries all around the world, we found the perfect one.

You can zip a new look on and off comfortably as they're made using an innovative hidden zip technology that won't touch or irritate your skin. 

Transform your style at a zip of a sleeve. This innovative feature is what sets our shorts apart.

Each pair of sleeves have been individually designed and are inspired by art and fashion. There are over 35 styles to choose from, and we will continue to develop more designs with each season.  

The designs on the sleeves continue on the inside, so depending on how you like to wear your shorts, you can roll them up and still have the design on show. 

If you fancy an even shorter pair of shorts for those hot summer days, just zip them off entirely for another kind of look. 

We worked with experienced tailors to create over 20 prototypes before reaching the final design. Many factors were taken into consideration to reach the highest quality

  • Finding the right fabric that's strong, yet feels soft on the skin
  • Using the best quality zippers 
  • Designing the technology to change the sleeves
  • The motion and fit
  • Pocket style, size and positioning 
  • How the shorts fasten
  • Fabric colours
  • Types of stitching

Attention to detail, high quality shorts that won't fade and fall apart after just one season

  •  Natural fibres (cotton): Synthetic fabrics need dry cleaning and special care. Our cotton shorts and sleeves look great wash after wash, and let your skin breathe. 
  •  Top tailoring: Chameleoh shorts are well-cut, without cutting corners.
  •  Fabric patterns that match front and back: If the design continues onto the other side it will be seamlessly matched up.
  •  Good thread: Bad thread will only weaken over time. We only use strong and sturdy thread in our designs. 
  •  Quality fasteners & buttons: There won't be any embarrassing moments whilst wearing Chameleoh shorts as we only use the highest quality buttons and fasteners. 
  •  Strong stitches: There won't be any unravelling of thread, snags, uneven lines, missed stitching or loose stitches on the shorts or sleeves.

Chameleoh shorts are rooted in practicality - instead of buying new shorts, there will always be a new sleeve design available to change or update your look. Less washing, ironing and less fuss. 

Four generous pockets - two at the front and two at the back. 

Handy coin pocket.

Discreet security pocket with a zip to safely stash your cards, money and keys. 

Save space in your wardrobe and when packing your travel bag.

With what you would usually spend on one pair of shorts, you can have three sleeve designs, creating three different looks for the price of one.

Chameleoh’s Can Ozis

Can Ozis is an Entrepreneur living between London and Dubai. He has been in the textile business since 2014, where he launched Koala Collection - a beach towel and accessories brand that allows people to sunbathe in style. His vision is to give people the best quality in stylish products, at an affordable price.

“Living in Dubai where the sun is always shining, shorts are my go-to choice for optimum comfort. I wear them everywhere.  But I always struggled to find shorts that were both comfortable and stylish. And I saw how guys wore the exact same shorts for a night out as they did going for coffee, or to the park. This was when I got the idea to create Chameleoh - a pair of shorts that don’t compromise on comfort for the sake of fashion or style. They can be the stand-out feature of an outfit or can be kept understated, depending on your style. It’s the choice and simplicity that’s so appealing, and it’s just ideal to own a pair of great shorts that can adapt to any environment. We are launching our crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter in April 2019, we hope that you will be part of the change.”

As one of the first crowdfunding marketing agencies, Enventys Partners has brought more than 750 crowdfunding projects to life through lead generation, campaign page creation, public relations, email marketing, Facebook Advertising, campaign management and more.

Risks and challenges

We have minimised all areas of risk with this project to avoid any chance of delays in production. We have added enough buffer time for both production and delivery to meet our backers expectations. We will be working hard for a timely delivery of high quality shorts and sleeves.

We will be working closely with our manufacturers and tailors to constantly update them on our Kickstarter campaign to help anticipate production timings and allocate capacity appropriately.

If there are any delays or unforeseen circumstances we will keep our backers updated on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions,

Thank you.
