Marcus Hall is #MadeForKnoxville.

The love of making is woven through Marcus’ history. His family worked at the Levi’s factory on Cherry Street, only a few blocks away from where the Marc Nelson Denim storefront and production house lives today. The community could take pride in knowing that Levi’s were made in Knoxville and sold all over the world. That sense of pride is what led Marcus to start his small-batch denim business over 10 years ago.

Knoxville has been more than a community for Marcus – it’s a family. He believes in putting your heart and soul into what you do.

“If I didn’t believe in it, I’d be out of business.”

You can stop by  the Marc Nelson Denim storefront at 700 E Depot Ave.
