Damn. What's the cab, Eslavos? Can't see.
First post in this thread and first EG's after 20+ Carminas/Aldens, echoing Wills. Yes, leather's an organic material and has veins/creases, but these look more like cracks. Is this just dry Doak burnishing, or is this something to send back? My fear is it'll get worse, even if nourished & polished, with wear.
