The East Coast Defender hits just keep on coming with Project Blackout. What started as a 1987 Defender 90 has been reborn as a black-on-black-on-black monster decked out in both performance and creature comforts. The brief provided to ECD by the customer described something “equally at home on the road as it is during a long weekend at the beach.” The 5.3-liter 326-hp Chevy LC9 V8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission delivers in both power and a smooth ride, and the Kenwood infotainment system, amplified speakers and heated leather seats will leave you comfortable and content regardless of how long the trip is. It’s a menacing piece of machinery that also happens to be relaxing on the inside. Put it this way—if the cast of Predator decided they wanted to go to the beach after a hard day of air arm wrestling and saving the world, this is the vehicle they’d ride in.


Tired of the limited options in the brick-and-mortar world and the traditional retail experience, the guys from Paul Evans set out to make their own luxury Italian shoes. Made from the finest Italian calfskin leather that’s been Blake stitched for exceptional comfort, sleek design and the ability to resole, these dress shoes are heritage brand quality available to you at a fraction of the cost.
