Sherman Fantasias

Nat Sherman is a brand of natural "luxury cigarettes", packaged and marketed to a higher-class clientele than most cigarettes. The company, headquartered in New York City, also sells cigars, pipe tobacco, and accessories. Nat Sherman has been selling tobacco since 1930. Nat Sherman is also one of the most famous cigar manufacturers in the United States having provided cigars to gentlemen's clubs throughout New York City for 75 years. The boxes of the company note that the headquarters are located on Fifth Avenue, New York City, (although now they are located just around the corner on 42nd St.) and currently include, as well as a retail section, a smoking lounge, and is stocked with various memorabilia relating to the company's history.
