Crombie, the prestigious British company, has put the menswear brand Tommy Nutter for sale. The company, owned by businessman Alan Lewis, is willing to either sell the Tommy Nutter brand or enter into a partnership for its further growth.
The sale of the brand, for which no price has been quoted, includes a small quantity of original pieces that have designs drawn by Tommy Nutter, prior to his death in 1992.
While many textile and fashion companies have been apprised about the sale, companies from India and China have shown the most interest in acquiring the brand.
Crombie said it wants to focus on the expansion of its own high-end suits and coats line.
Tommy Nutterâs first shop was opened in 1969 and it proved very popular with artists and rock stars, including the Beatles in the 1970s.
Tommy Nutterâs work is currently being displayed at an exhibition at the Londonâs Fashion and Textile Museum.
