    The apron is probably the most beautiful detail on any shoe I have ever seen. I feel like there are stages to a person's evolution of tastes in shoes and liking split toes like the dover is one of them.

    I mostly agree with this statement.

    Forgiving me for being honest and specially and referring any user (well, me maybe): When you start tumblering you start using short jackets and pants and mediocre shoes, but then you start to realize the real value of details.

    Do anyone here own a pair of G&G and compare the EG sizeing to GG? On my EG shoes i use 10.5 W width on 202 and 82 last. Shoud i go for E width on the GG to or maybe go up to F if im not able to test the shoes out?

    I have a UK 9.5E on the DG70 last. I also have UK 9.5E on EG's 888, 808, 202 and 89 lasts. All of these fit very well. On the 89, I also have a UK 9E which I prefer - its a bit more snug. But the UK9.5 E is also fine. On the EG 82 last, I actually have a UK9.5D which fits like a glove after some breaking in. I have always wondered about going down a width on the 202, from E to D - I think it could be done, would fit better, and would probably make the silhouette less "bulbous" looking, for lack of a better word. But have never actually tried it.

    If you're an E on the 202 and the fit is roomy, then I think you'll be fine with the E width on the DG70 or TG73 (I think I have those numbers right). If the 202 is tight on you with the E width, then you might need to go up a width in G&G, because I believe the general consensus is that the 202 is a generous last.

    Would be curious to hear other thoughts on this though . . .

    There is nothing I find overly attractive about the Dover, and the internet fuss over it leaves me quite cold. I can totally appreciate the workmanship of it, but I can think of a couple of dozen other pairs of shoes that I'd take over this.

    It's not like I don't understand the hate. I felt the same exact way. Hated split toes, hated derbies, hated Balmoral boots, hated split toes, hated loafers, hated black shoes, hated Bobby lasts. Then I saw more pictures, bought more shoes, and my tastes did complete 180s. You'll probably disagree and say you'll never love the dover which is fine. I just think a lot of people who love the dover started by hating it and not getting why people like it. Kind of like hating the taste of beer, it's an acquired taste. Just my 2 cents.
