Not my pic, but it's my favorite comparison pic online:

Looks great. I think the Hoves looks a bit more balanced, the Dover's split toe stitching seems to stretch a tad too long onto the vamp.

It seems like everyone either favors the more country iconic style (Dover), or the more dressy/modern take (Hove). While i would like a Dover one of these days, between these two, i picked the Hove. The reasons you mentioned being part of it...

I own 32 Last Dover and MH71 Hove.  They are very different shoes.

Bird's eye view if 32 and MH71.
Forgive me for poor quality pics.

Thanks. I asked for an update in May and I was told the shoes are just about ready, now the retailer isn't returning my emails. I wouldn't mind so much if I hadn't put down a $900 deposit.

 

Guess I'll keep trying.

The only two Gaziano & Girling stockists in Toronto are Leatherfoot and John Ferrigamo (a bespoke tailor shop). I don't have any experience with John Ferrigamo but my two orders with Leatherfoot I found their communication to be lacking.

Great pic. I actually like both, but the Hove looks like a fit summer body, and the Dover is a winter shot after the holidays.

I can empathize with you. That waiting was always my experience with G&G MTOs. In the end I just factored that service into the price and moved to another maker that delivers MTOs on time (on one order it was even a week early, imagine!)

Hang in there! You can try emailing the factory.

I'm contemplating my first G&G - black oxford for CBD.

The million $ question - which last DG70 or MH71?
