I can confirm that there were good models there in odd sizes from £290 last time I went (last year I think).
The odd ball models were less - as little as £120 or so

Really? Thats very surprising to me. I guess I was wrong then...

Well, to clarify the prices were more in the area you mentioned, but I only meant to say there were good shoes for the lower prices just not in so much quantity though. Hard to generalise I think....

If there is such a thing...what would be the "classic" last that the Dover is built on? 202? 606?
post #8392 of 20533
606 is the most attractive and traditional IMO.

I'm coming around to the 606. Has a bit more shape than the 202 it seems.

Edit: TTS sizing for 606? I'm 8UK on the 82.

I have the Dover on both lasts. If you want, I could post some photos of them for you to compare? Personally, I think they both have their charm. What sometimes bother me with the 606 version is that the space between the apron and the front of the shoe gets pretty elongated, which almost creates a kind of "camel toe" effect, if you know what I am saying.

That would be greatly appreciated if it isn't too much trouble. It would be great to see a top shot with both lasts in the same shot.

I favor the look of the 202 on oxfords; it is incredibly solid and classic, and for me it fits superbly.

There is something disproportionate or displeasing--some might say "blobby"--about the 202 on some bluchers and other styles. I think it has to do with the Dover's split toe also, which looks best on a chiseled toe; this may be why some pursue an MTO or TD to get the 888 for the Dover, which is chiseled to the point of being sharp or further elongated.

I might not be able to get them both in the same shot, since my 202 Dovers are packed away for winter storage. However, I think I have some top shots from before and I could try and photoshop them together with a pic of the 606s. I'll see what I can do!

Oh goodness. Don't go through that much trouble!

Brooks Brothers sells the Dover on 888. Price usually sucks, but they were eligible for the 30% corporate discount last month. That reduced the price to under $1k including shoe tress. I believe they're doing another corporate sale in mid/late May, but I don't know if EG will be excluded this time around.

I think my next EG purchase will be dover or nevis, either on 606
