330CK would be the one to ask about Bosca
i think it might have been one of the brands he was recommending to me when he was showing me some briefcase listings before
(or i could totally be wrong and it was some other brand that started with a B)

cross posting this from the Alden Styleforum thread, but... maybe i'm being a needy customer but i'm a bit irked at the lack of service from Alden of SF. I ordered the Ravello LWB on Saturday evening. After somebody suggesting they came with dark trim, I e-mailed them to ask about the trim. I asked if they could send a picture. The response I got was "It's antique trim. I can't send a picture." Okay? You don't have a smartphone? Whatever, fine. I thanked them for verifying and told them no picture was necessary. I informed them I would be leaving for Sweden in 10 days and wanted to know when I could expect them to ship. The response was: "You'll receive a confirmation sometime later today." Later today I received an e-mail from "UPS Quantum View," the automated UPS shipping notification. No e-mail from Alden of SF. No "Thank you for your order." No "Don't worry, we'll take care of it." It must be nice to sell a product that will sell out regardless of how you treat your customers. Would I shop there again? Sure, if they had something I really wanted... but if it came down to purchasing from somewhere else over them, I wouldn't even have to think twice about purchasing somewhere else. I just hope there is nothing wrong with them, I loathe to imagine engaging in any customer service issue with them. /end rant

Regent is a nice fit....I've got a suit in that cut and it looks nice. I also have one in the Fitzgerald cut....slightly different but they both look very nice.

I've had this feeling, myself. You'd think, being someone willing to spend a flat out silly amount on shoes during a recession, they'd be overly courteous. As it turns out, they have a product that literally sells itself right now and customer service is sometimes taking a back seat.

I imagine this is what it's like to be a drug dealer.

I actually LOL'ed. Didn't catch that the first time.

In a pleasant update, the buyer has now provided an American shipping address.

Upon further inspection, he's a GI stationed in Germany.

And it's a pair of shoes.

If you wait on me for capital, I don't think this project will ever take off

Anyway
On a serious note, I wonder if anyone can really compete with alden
Maybe an established company that wants to expand into that market?

I've got to think that the real question is whether Alden can compete in the shoe market. Higher-grade shoes are much more of a niche market. I've got to think that for every pair of Aldens sold, there are at least 20 pairs of Kenneth Coles out there. So I dunno that an established player in the shoe industry would want to compete in a low-volume, lower-profit arena.

I was in Nordstrom on Saturday and was surprised to see them selling Wolverine 1000 Miles in the men's shoe section. That's the first time I've seen them in a store--or anywhere, for that matter.
