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.
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.
