Himalaya x Taylor Stitch

The Land Rover restoration specialists over at Himalaya have teamed up with San Francisco menswear brand Taylor Stitch to offer their take on the 1970 Land Rover Series IIA "Pre-Defender." The classic SUV has been thoroughly upgraded with updates that include a 300TDI diesel Defender engine, disc brakes, an automatic transmission, and power steering. Taylor Stitch gave the interior an overhaul in waterproof waxed suede with a wool-lined truck bed and this is all complemented by an exterior finished in a vintage Porsche-inspired Aga Blue paint.
