Anything DOVER looks amazing to me. But yeah I swore to myself I would not buy any more black shoes. I simply have too many lol.
On another note, what's the difference between the 32 Last and 202/606? IIRC 606 and 202 only differed in the toe area right?
The 32 is a little slimmer, and the toe is slightly longer. Compared to the 202/606 in the same size it will feel more snug.

Trying it on, I would opt for a half size up from 82 / 202 / 606.

This is the first time we stock the 32, so I dont have a ton of experience with it. I just saw some old pictures of it online, and taught it looked good.
It's also not as anatomical as 202 or 606 i.e. it's straighter. Here is a comparison 202 vs. 32

I have an Edward Green Hove single monk strap in UK9/9.5 82E Last but that was an quite old model before EG change the moulding last from wood to resin. It fits me great but wonder do I still need to down half a size now if I will to get Edward green now in 82E?
Having only worked with EG for the past 4 years, I never owned a pair made on the old wooden lasts. I am sure somebody on her may have better advice from their experience, than I can provide regarding this.

I don't know about the whole resin vs. wood situation at EG. What I do know is that all of my EG shoes are half a size up from C&J, Alfred Sargent, Cheaney, John Lobb. Ultimately, the EG shoes still fit more comfortably and more snug in the right places than all the others I mentioned.

I guess how shoes fits is very individual.
I wear 8,5 UK in all my shoes across EG, StC, C&J, Bemer and our own Cavour shoes. And they all fit me comfortably. My Bemers are the best fit yet, but my EG Chelsea in mink 82 and my StC 633 on classic last probably gets the most wear..

If it fits you great then I'd stick to the same size. If it was a bit large I would think about going down a half size. My older pairs are just a hair more snug than current ones, not enough to warrant any size adjustment. Obviously, ymmv but I think my experience is probably a majority of people's.

Second this, all my EG have to be half size larger than my JL, CJ and I d say their US size stands for the true fit instead of UK size.

I can wear an 8 or 8.5 in EG, and an 8 with the very occasional 7.5 in other brands.

I also take the same size in both the old and new lasts,with the new ones being a touch more generous.

Speaking of Cranleigh, what do you all think of Cranleigh vs. Galway for a first EG pair of boots?

Would be mostly worn with jeans/chinos, and almost never with finer tailoring. I'm gravitating towards the Cranleigh in 202 in dark brown Utah.

That Cranleigh is gorgeous. Been thinking of getting the one in black london grain with the shearling lining for winters. How did you size yours? TTS? I am a UK 10 on the C&J 325 and 335 lasts.
Thanks! It's on the 202 last which I take half size up from 325. I can get away with going down a width on 202 lasted shoes, but these I wear with thicker socks

What would your Galway makeup be? Honestly Galway is quintessential EG boot and I'd always suggest going with that as the first one

I want something that can handle rainy London days and fly under the radar - so I was thinking a dainite sole on 202 with Utah across the whole boot.

I was concerned that the toe cap on the Galways is going to make them a bit more formal versus the Cranleighs given it would mostly be worn with jeans.

Check out Galways on the 64/72 lasts in Utah or Country Calf. Those lasts will make the boot instantly casual. CC will hold up to rain the best imo, but Utah will do just fine plus will be more supple
