    The Dock Pant Story


    The Boys at Merritt’s Boat & Engine Works in Pompano Beach, FL., know a little something about pants. Dock pants particularly and Capt. Johnny Williams specifically. Not only is he the captain on the 58’ Caliban, Roy Merritt’s personal boat, he’s also a master boat builder and interior carpenter which makes him one of the most versatile and skilled hands at “the yard.” He’s been at it since he was 18yrs old.

    So when it came to sea trialing our new Dock Pant, we turned to Johnny. His requirements were simple: a durable cotton fabric that will wear well year ‘round…”it gets real hot down here in the summer;” a flat-front, zipper-fly style that is comfortable in all the right places, especially in the crotch, legs and seat. “Ease of movement is critical, but they can’t be baggy…I can’t have pant legs that flap around in a breeze and get hung up on hardware,” he says. “Just give me a pant that lets me go from working on Hull #110 to the flybridge of the Caliban in one fell swoop and I’ll be happy.”

    The last word from Johnny: “Y’all can do all the fancy stuff you want, but if it don’t fit just right, it ain’t for me.”

    We got you Johnny.

    The Atlantic Rancher Dock Pant is every bit a durable, functional, year ‘round work pant…suitable for work in the bilge as it is comfortable and presentable wear at the IGFA Annual Awards Dinner. Cut from mid-weight, 10oz cotton twill, the fabric contains 2% Elastane for superior comfort and all-day wear. The build is a traditional waistband, flat-front construction with a YKK brand brass zipper fly closure. Stowage compartments include two on-seam side pockets, a coin pocket, and two flap-over back pockets with button closures. The fit is a traditional straight-leg, but it’s what we call “updated traditional” meaning they’re roomie enough but not blousy. The waist sits right on your hips, but these ain’t lowriders. Oh…and one more thing: you put them on one leg at a time.

    Comments: Email response for questions was prompt, courteous, and personable.
    Love the all around fit of these!

    These are a bit looser in the waist than I expected, but nothing a belt won't take care of. Everywhere else though the fit is spot on. Nice heavy cotton, just how I like 'em. Well done!

    Great pair of pants!

    These are a fantastic pair of chinos. They aren't baggy or too tight, and the fabric feels like it'll hold up for quite a long time.

    If I had to nit-pik anything, it would be with the waist button. I've already sewn it down a bit better, realizing I would have eventually lost it. Other than that, I love 'em and won't stop me from buying a different color!

    Comments: Easy to order, quick to recive.

    Great Pair of Cotton Trousers -Dock Pants in olive

    This was my first time ordering a pr of cotton khakis from Atlantic Rancher. I am completely sold on their shirts, so well-made. Well, their dock pants are of equal quality, like khakis used to be made. Just watch their video. They are also cut a little fuller in the waist , back of the pants and legs. very highly recommend A+++++.
