First and foremost, a big thank you for contributing to the wealth of information in there Certainly helpful in the shoe purchasing decision.
My first pair of Loakes, the Strand Burgundyarrived a few days ago and I noticed that the stitching of the GY welt on my left shoe seems frayed and breaking off. I have not worn the shoes yet.
Also noticed slight fraying of the stitching in the right shoe:
I suppose I should send it back halfway around the world for a replacement pair?
Appreciate your comments.
