The owner of luxury line Crombie who was arrested over a rape claim last month will be in court tomorrow in a legal dispute over the use of the name Savile Row tailor Tommy Nutter.
Alan Lewis, also vice chairman of the Conservative party, is appealing against the decision by the UK Intellectual Property Office in February to revoke his use of the name Tommy Nutter and award it to Nutters of Savile Row owner David Mason. Lewis lost the name due to non-use.
Lewis, who was ordered to pay costs of more than £3,000, has appealed against the decision and has argued that he has kept the name in use.
The 75 year-old owner of luxury line Crombie was arrested over a rape claim dating back to the 1960s. He has since been released on bail, pending further inquiries.
