    I doubt you will be able to find Dovers on the 888, I have seen a few on the 888 on the Leffot site that were done a couple of years ago. A few months ago I asked E.G. to make me a Dover on the 888, they refused. They said the only offered them on the 606 and on the 32 last, the 888 was not an option.

    In hind sight I think the Dover looks far out best on the 606, it seems that the 606 and the Dover were made for each other. To my eye the 606 has allot in common with the 888, just the 606 has a softer square toe compared to the 888.

    If I were you I would just get the standard RTW Dovers in Dark Oak on the 606, and skip the waiting and up-charge that comes with going MTO.

    The 82 should also be an option; I have a pair on the 82.

    Brooks Brothers has Dovers on 888 last in case you are interested.

    Someone asked on which last the Dovers were made on the BB website, see below. The question was asked 1 year and 5 months ago, I doubt this information is up to date. I doubt they still offer them on the 888 unless they have some old stock:

    1What last are these made on? When will you have D widths?

    Just adding a data point: I bought a pair of the Edward Green Dovers from the Brooks Brothers web site in May, and they were on the 888 last.
