"Uncle Jack" Sheimreif is the original Atlantic Rancher and the inspiration for our company. Living a simple, rewarding life with purpose and integrity was his thing. When he was first featured in our catalog in 1995, folks would ask me: where did you find that “model”? I laughed of course as we’ve never used models and was amused those folks didn’t get he was my uncle. Throughout the years, Uncle Jack has inspired many of our products…the Barnegat Bay Cruiser, the AR Fleece Bomber, our clam and oyster shucking knives, the AR cast iron bottle opener and our sea salt rubs just to name a few. However, he rarely wore our clothes. He’d tell me, “Why would I when the one I’s got suits me just fine?” That is until I showed him one of our Bayman’s Blanket-Flannel Shirt and then things changed. He could have had any, but his pick-‘o-the-litter was this one. He was so tied to this shirt he wore it like a uniform…tonging for clams on Great Bay, NJ and rigging sailfish baits in Stuart, FL.

We reached way back into our Vintage Locker and photos of Uncle Jack to remind of this tugboat of shirt we first built in 1995, The Bayman’s Blanket-Flannel Shirt. Beware, this is not your casual-at-the-office kind of shirt, unless of course your office is choring on the back 40, huntin’ in the bay or fishin’ offshore. No, this shirt is more a piece of gear than it is clothing.

Fabric selection is the key here. We’ve woven this fabric from a hefty, 10oz yarn-dyed 55 cotton/45 linen blend. Why linen? Because linen is 30% stronger than cotton and lasts longer…as in years longer than cotton on its own. The patterns are vintage all the way. We’re making less than 100 shirts in total this season...so if these shirts are your thing, make ‘em your thing quickly.

Comments: Thank you Atlantic Rancher
Uncle Jack knows something about flannel

This flannel is warm and cozy great to wear under a jacket in the winter or over a t shirt on a cool summer evening. Another winner from Atlantic Rancher

Comments: Just keep um coming you've got a great brand
Uncle Jacks blanket flannel, like no other flannel shirt ever

The look and feel of this flannel shirt has no comparison. The Bayman flannel is great, what you would expect in a high quality fannel but the blanket flannel is another level. I bought a 2x and it fit great but I wanted more room so I could use it to lounge in on those cool evenings in the summer down at the shore so I got a 3x. There's not much more to say, another fantastic product by Atlantic Rancher

Haylie Zangrillo (Olga, US)

I bought this shirt for my husband who drinks coffee in 40 degree weather, 90% humidity, outside no matter what the sky is doing. He loves it.I know cause its always on him. Great style. Very thick, comfortable fabric. Cut slim-ish. I bought a S, for a slight guy, it’s nice to not have buckets of extra around you. Keep up the niceness, the quality, the oh-so spot-on-ness!

Comments: This is the second of three items that I have purchased from Atlantic Rancher and I’ve yet to be disappointed.
Going Home

Wearing this shirt is like going home to warm comfortable blanket on a brisk fall evening. The quality is unmatched the fit is perfect and the comfort is exquisite. Truly not a finer flannel shirt to be found elsewhere.

Rodney (New Haven, US)
Fantastic Fit and Materials

Received my first couple of items from AR, this shirt being one.
This shirt absolutely exceeded my expectations !
Quality of fabric, cut, fit, weight of materials simply outstanding.
I’ll probably get one in the other color option.
