I'm deeply sorry for your loss and looking forward to the launch of the website. Banisters are one of the hardest to find. Newark, N.J., illustrated. (1893) The industrial interests of Newark, N. J. (1874)
My intention was resale price in Japan. So, wholesale price (thru ebay) would be around $100 to $300.For example, old Church's prices last 3 months at a Japanese auction:http://closedsearch.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/closedsearch?select=02&ei=UTF-8&va=%E6%97%A7%E3%83%81%E3%83%A3%E3%83%BC%E3%83%81&auccat=0&slider=0
http://www.styleforum.net/t/363690/help-identifying-a-pair-of-vintage-churchs-two-eye-plain-toe-derbys#post_6625641 These are around 70s. If you buy from the same person, other shoes would be 70s. Your Alan McAfee was made by Church's. The sizes range 6 to 8 are ideal for the Japanese market and they will be sold around $300 to $700. (Canadian shoemakers are less popular.) For example, sold for 68,250 yen. http://unionworks.blog118.fc2.com/blog-entry-1176.html

Would you happen to know JEDDITE? (A company's name or a trademark? The number 25109 is not listed in http://www.ipo.gov.uk/types/tm/t-os/t-find/tmcase.htm ) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-PEAL-amp-CO-50-039-s-era-Mint-Unworn-BENCH-MADE-in-England-DRESS-SHOES-sz-11-/301247501105
Looks like Estonian tannery TripleSkin begins to sell a replica next October, not just embossed finish.Very small calfskin (5.4 sq.ft.) if a whole skin.Same announcement by Estonian bespoke shoemaker Kriuks.https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=et&tl=en&u=http://www.kriuks.com/et/kriuks-news/mis-yufte-ja-mis-ta-meist-motleb-4137/Does anyone happen to have read a detailed identification of the Metta Catharina leather as reindeer hide by British Leather...
Oh, I'm sorry, they may be hand-sewn welted + norvegese.The cobbler explains two rows of inseams with the following picture.
@DWFII Here is a second inseam.
Here are interesting shoes by Stefano Bemer (Goodyear welted + Norvegese). http://unionworks.blog118.fc2.com/blog-entry-1668.html
