My curiosity was more about the fact that many PTB do not have a pattern at all. There is no dover, nassau, or anything on the majority of PTBs. I prefer the aesthetic of the dover or nassau. I am not a fan of the PTB which is nearly a wholecut except for the lacing.
Thanks for the info gentlemen. I'll just continue being patient and watching the LSW site for a dover or nassau PTB that I like.
I'm with you on the look of dover PTB. I have been kicking myself for not grabbing the cigar shell PTB w/ dover pattern that unionmade had back around the holidays. I was leery of the plantation crepe and still don't like it but it is definitely the closest thing I have seen recently to my perfect PTB.
