Wat Tyler - rebel Englishman, freedom fighter, hero and leader of the so called "peasant's" revolt of 1381.
He was a man who fought and died in order to make things better for his own people. He never accepted the status quo and challenged the authorities and those in charge who saw themselves as born to rule - those that saw themselves as better than everyone else and him as a mere "rustic" He despised the establishment and in a time when punishments were harsh, refused to be intimidated.
Wat Tyler epitomised something that we very often forget about the English and that is our tradition for radical thought and action – in short people just like Wat Tyler and John Ball who were prepared to think the unthinkable no matter what the consequences. Continetal commentators frequently noted the political volatility of the English and ambassadors from abroad were often fearful of setting foot on English soil. Some writers put this English radicalism down to “the natural aggression of the natives”He was a wolf while all we have is so many sheep. He was a man of spirit, courage and conviction – oh how I wish he were here now.

It's an "England" clothing range that's just a little bit different. The Senlak White Dragon logo is inspired by the White Dragon of the Anglo-Saxons. The dragon banner was the original flag of the English and predates the Cross of St George by many hundreds of years - it is the ancient emblem of the English and is a strong statement of our unique culture and heritage.
The English have a rich history of radical thought and action. We don't like others imposing their views on us and we don't like being told what to do. So for all those non-conformers, the free thinkers and the rebellious. For those that don't always believe everything that the "clever people" tell us and for all those generations scattered around the globe who still remember who we are and all we have achieved - We embrace you all.
Two fingers to "their" status quo and long live the Rebel English.

Angelcynn Outfitters - (on the sleeve patch) - Angelcynn - (the kin of the English) is the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) word for the English people or nation.
“Se swa his halaford” (on the sleeve patch) – “each his own lord” in Old English. It’s an old English saying that we like very much, and sums up nicely the outlook of our early ancestors. It’s about loyalty and respect being given only to those who have earned it. Free men do not owe loyalty or respect to those who show no respect or loyalty to them. Those who treat us with contempt should only be shown contempt back.
