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.

 

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'm genuinely surprised that you don't have the Dover, NAMOR.

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

 

Hey, no problems, mate. Here you go, hope this helps (click to enlarge, of course).

Exactly. So, which one appeals to you the most you think?

My eye gets drawn to the rounder toe of the 202. That shape in that color is exactly what I am looking for. How do I go about getting my hands on a 202 lasted Dover?

MTO or through a store that carries it - Leffot seems to have one on the 202 (or is it the 32?): http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/edward-green/dover-dark-brown-delapre.html
