Alex Henshaw was a British wartime test pilot, flying the Spitfire for the duration of World War Two. In spite of a number of near misses and one large accident, Alex continued to test Spitfires for the duration of the war. We have decided to name our most popular shirt after this exceptional gentleman as his tenacious spirit and classic British style mirrors what we aim to achieve with our shirts…and because he did a barrel roll at 200 feet over the centre of Birmingham despite specifically being told not to.
