Warm up alongside the weather with these Marc Nelson staples. Jeans are timeless; any season, any style, any pairing. Our favorite Spring looks are irresistibly airy with simple minimalism, solid colors, clean lines, and lightweight fabrics.  Anne in our MND Basic Gray Tank, looks elegant and effortless in draping American Made cotton.  

As for the bottom half, Anne is in our American Made White Skinny, "The Good Karmen" and minimal black heels for good measure. This look is reminiscent of the infamous 60's color-blocking trend, through a casually modern lens. Both of these looks move effortlessly from morning to evening, with all the lightness of Spring. 

Here a similar paring; our best-selling Women's denim, the Indigo Skinny, with MND Basic Red Tee, and  subtle heels. Our Indigo Skinny is 100% American Made, and dyed in a true blue-black hue. It's a classic that can be dressed up, down, and any which-other-way. 

Shop these Spring looks in store or online, either way drop a line and say hello, and get fit for a pair of your own. 

All of our products are 100% American Made, of the highest quality denim and other natural textiles, designed and crafted by yours truly. 



That's right: a half-pipe in our parking lot. Well, a half-pipe, music stage, food trucks, and an expected audience of about 300, to be exact. We cannot wait to welcome athletes, musicians, and Knoxville's finest to our store in the Old City and have one hell of a Saturday. 

Our store will be open alongside the festivities; fitting, altering, and hemming all Saturday, 10 to 6. 

RAIL JAM festivities begin at 6 PM.



This coming week is one for the books- Knoxville Fashion Week, First- Friday art shows, fundraising events, artist collaborations, and snipping the loose strings for the Spring line. We've got lists a mile long, and its just the mile we love. 

Here's a run-down of the coming week. 


1. Knoxville's Annual Fashion Week

Biggest on our list this coming week is Knoxville's Fashion Week. Each year the best talent and designers come together to celebrate and showcase the point at which art and fashion converge.

We are thrilled to host the official launch party for KFW. We're concocting an elaborate celebration with music from the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and an exclusive pre-show of select Knoxville Designers, including yours truly. 

If interested in joining the fun, see tickets here.

And that's a wrap.


STYLE COLLABORATION: Hackwith Design House

With Valentine's barely behind us, we're still feeling the love here at Marc Nelson Denim.

This week we are creating a simple, timeless look with our own Ladies Washed Skinny paired with a flowing cream top from Hackwith Design House's Basic Collection.

Our denim is, of course, 100% made and designed in America by yours truly. This jean was designed for the everyday and the all-day. They flatter any frame, and with top-grade denim and 6% spandex, they won't wear out season to season. 


This top is wonderfully light and airy, perfect for brightening these winter days indoors. This piece stands out by its subtle detail- unique stitchings, rounded design, plus being a real dream to the touch. On the body it falls effortlessly, making it our fellow-designer pick of the month. 

Each piece from Hackwith's collection is limited edition and handmade in Minneapolis, MN- less than 25 of each piece! Founder and designer Lisa Hackwith, is creating a renaissance of unique, one-of-a-kind staples for the everyday woman's closet. For further detail and more minimal designs, head over to Hackwith Design House and spread the love.
