If you’re not familiar with East Coast Defender, you don’t read Cool Material too often. We’re kinda fanboys. That’s why we’re more than a little excited about their latest build, Project KSD. The handcrafted Malibu Edition Defender 110 marks an exciting new chapter in the ECD story. That’s because Project KSD is the first in the Luxury Build Experience launched by the brand. Instead of a stock list of upgrades the client can request, now the Defender is stripped down to its chassis and rebuilt in the Design Studio with the help of the person purchasing the ride. New accessories. More colors. Engine options. This is truly a custom vehicle, and you can see the difference in the interior shots, especially. Expect to see many more unique Defenders rolling out of the ECD lab soon. 


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. Lace up something better with Paul Evans.
