Hey, Mark here. Thank you for your interest in what we are doing.  As Ever is a new venture for me 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, 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.

As Ever came about almost by accident.  During a workshop move in late 2013 a mishap resulted in me breaking my arm.  In the process I uncovered some long stored vintage clothing projects my wife and I scored 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 started exploring dyeing.  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 dyeing 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.
