Head SE from Florida’s Hillsborough Inlet, 53 nautical miles, and you’ll come upon North Bimini, a boomerang shaped island perched on the edge of the Gulf Stream. The eastern arm of the island, barely 700ft at its widest point, stretches to the northeast for about 7 miles before making an abrupt swing to the south, where it widens across the shallows of the Great Bahama Bank into a swarm of mangrove forests that still today, are considered one of the world’s most ecologically important nurseries for all matter of fish and shellfish. This international treasure of wilderness is overshadowed by the sportfishing adventures of men like Michael Lerner, Zane Grey and Ansil Saunders that brought fame and notoriety to this humble spit of sand. Their stories, recounted and magnified tenfold in the cavernously crusty old bar of the Complete Angler Hotel, were amplified by newspaper and sporting journals…and by one particularly noteworthy bit of writing: Islands In The Stream, published in 1970, written by one of Bimini’s best known protagonists, Ernest Hemingway.
Look at the old photographs…they all wore shirts like this. Shirts with purpose and attitude.
Our Bimini Short Sleeve Shirt is built to be the best for the purpose for which it was intended: fishing the Gulf Stream, in comfort. And you can’t have comfort without the proper fabric. We use a 140x1 compact yarn to build our Bimini Short Sleeve shirt. Why? This combination of yarn size and compact construction yields a finer, smoother fabric that is extremely light weight, just 2.2 oz / sq.mtr. And attitude plays a big part in how this shirt is patterned out and constructed. Uncomplicated. A simple camp collar design that lays the entire collar down… around your neck, not up on your neck, and in front, down and away from the throat. You’ll stay cooler that way. One center back pleat, an ample sized front chest pocket and of course properly cut shirttail that you wear tucked or untucked, with our signature shirttail flap buttons.
While we are pretty sure few of these shirts will ever absorb the hot sun and the breezy salt air of August in Bimini, sporting one at your next neighborhood bar-b-q will take you to Bimini and back…before anyone realizes you’ve been temporarily away from a boring conversation about your neighbor’s lawn fertilizer.

The Bimini Shirt has become my favorite for hot weather. This summer has been HOT here in Texas, so that’s much appreciated. The cotton fabric is very light and breathable. I wish that the shirt could iron itself, otherwise it’s ideal. I’ve bought three of them so far.
Bimini shirt is perfect, comfortable, retro style
Shout-out for the personalized customer service I received on a recent shirt order for my husband's Father's Day present. I had purchased a shirt in two different sizes with plans to try both and send back whichever one didn't fit. Within minutes of my online order, I received a call and an offer to answer questions and help me home in on the exact right shirt. It was perfect advice and my husband is thrilled with his new Bimini shirt! He says it evokes fond memories of the whisper-weight cotton shirts the old captains of Oregon Inlet, NC used to wear back in the 70s.
This is my first purchase from Atlantic Rancher, and I can say it has been a great experience. Everything from ordering, communication to getting the shirt. The shirt is just as described and incredibly soft. Looking forward to getting my next one.
