"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.

Great Shirt

This shirt is as described. Fits great. Very comfortable. True to size. Looks great tucked in or out. I have worn many different flannel shirts over the years. The Uncle Jack is as good as any I have owned. I liked the first one so much I ordered another one...

Great Shirt

Really well made. Be sure to hang dry, it will shrink a little.

Blanket Flannel-Uncle Jack

The shirt is perfect. Exactly as if hoped it be. More importantly was the time you guys took to look me up and send me a note on the receipt with a drawn airplane. Those are the things that make a company stand out and be remembered. Connection is everything. I love it as well as the sweat pants. You have a client for life!

Tom Minet (Bloomfield, US)
Great and unique

Although I have other blanket shirts, I don't have any others that feel or fit like this one. It's great in every way - nice feel, nice drape. I take a large in most things and the large fit me perfectly. Excellent craftsmanship. Would buy again.
