I'm deeply sorry for your loss and looking forward to the launch of the website. Banisters are one of the hardest to find.

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
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.
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...
The new Nettleton closely resembles Embassy, Ambiorix's trademark.
Thanks for your reply.
Here is Belgravia (reverse suede) by a shoe retailer KOKON.

That’s great news.
What do you mean, "two-way suede" or "two-way effect"?
Do you have any specific reason for discontinuing horsehide?
