hi! welcome to ever.  thanks for your interest in what we are doing.  ever is a new venture for me, mark kolski and my family.  we figured it was time to turn my collector/borderline hoarder obsession into a place where people can find and share the things we love.

out of the gate we will focus on restructured vintage, small quantity pieces and unique one of a kinds.  this is a family affair, but i will be doing most of the sourcing, sewing and dying.  my wife, astrid dahl, will be co-creative director for the pieces we produce and having a unique talent for photography, will contribute photos and shop updates via @asevernyc.

i have a storied history in western wear, dealing vintage, producing commercial advertising, tv & film, design/build and restaurants.  the one thing that has always been part of my life is the willingness to break for a great vintage/thrift store, estate/garage sale or have my ankles sticking out of a dumpster.

ever came about almost by accident.  during a workshop move in late 2013 a mishap resulted in me breaking my arm.  during that move i also uncovered some long stored vintage clothing projects my wife and i acquired on a trip to minneapolis.  with a 1951 singer for christmas, and limited abilities to work,  i produced a pair of pants for my wife.  she loved them and as it turns out, so did a lot of her friends.  this was fun.  

i soon started exploring dying.  this opened up a world of possibilities.  i have to give credit to sara moffat @ldbabrooklyn, and my wife for signing us up for her indigo dying class in early 2013.

the final kick in the butt to turn this creative outlet into a business came from moffat as well.  she, owning some of my creations, suggested i show at the field & supply event this past summer.  the reaction was much more that i expected.  

and here we are.  this is unfamiliar territory.  we hope to learn and grow.  hopefully you will enjoy what you find. 

please email and let us know what you think.
