Marcus Sherman was created as an experiment in content & commerce. Other’s have tried to blend commerce & content, but have been two different sites, with different brands. Think Thrillist and Jack Threads. Marcus Sherman has set out to create a content business rivaling the largest men’s sites along with an Amazon-like selection for men.
Even the name is a blend of two incredible figures. Marcus Aurelius & William Tecumseh Sherman. Marcus Aurelius, the philosopher-king, a Roman Emperor and stoic philosopher. William Tecumseh Sherman, a civil war general who led military strategy against the south. Strategy & philosophy are the guiding foundation for Marcus Sherman.
