Received an update by my shoemaker as he finished lasting one of the two pairs in the work for me, the diamond punched captoe balmoral oxfords in Weinheimer box calf model I posted drawings and patterns before:
The most evident feature is the front dart running all the way to the hem of the jacket and a short under arm dart running at an angle to the pocket.

An alternative to marcella was the finest white linen, but this had to be proper starched.The body is most recently made of fine poplin instead of voile.Pleated shirt can be made entirely of poplin or to have collar, cuff and pleated front in poplin and the body in voile.Twill is not appropriate, but I have seen museum pieces where voile with spaced...
