Matching for to Emigre's Eidetic Neo


An odd request. I know the font, hoping to pick folks brains about a substitute. The for is from the Emigre typehouse

The italic lowercase version is troubling a client and we're looking to find an italic face that would be compatible with Eidetic's roman face. Normally we would hand adjust the roman as a hack, but the font's lower case "s" is too distinctive (and it would be a tone of work).

Any guesses or recommendations?

Anyway, regarding Eidetic, the OT version of it has an alternate (plain) |s|:
