Looks like someone wasn't wearing their hairnet when they finished that pair! Me? I'd live with it (and maybe rant a little about Alden QC )
Yep. Too much human work from manufacturer's side ended up with a blemish! #firstworldproblem

its no biggie. plus with the rare shell/rare models, you kind of have to take the good with the bad.
Relevant user name? haha.
That's what I thought, although I thought only men worked at the dirty part of Horween Tannerary (from the documentaries that I watched )
I am looking at the bump real closely, and the coat is thorough; without making a slit, pulling out the hair would not be possible. Would you suggest doing this, or should I contact J Gilbert about this?
Thanks for response
i would just do it, because no matter how deep it is in the finish, its can't penetrate the shell itself.
also, I've put deepish scratches into shell and been amazed at how easily they brush out.
