Blind hem stitch, how visible is too visible?

I recently picked up a new suit, and had the pants plain hemmed by the tailor at the store. However, I'm a little concerned that the blind stitching on the hem may be excessively visible on the outside of the pants.

Is this normal? (I don't buy suits often, in fact this is only my second, and the first did not look like this). Should I return it and ask them to do it again (will they?). I have included a couple of photos. Thanks for your help!

Some might disagree with me, but I dont think I'd worry about it. Its really difficult to see in the second picture, a little more noticeable in the first though.

My midnight navy suit came back from the tailor looking like this. I worried about it for half an hour. But it really isn't noticeable (from 6 feet away!) when you're actually wearing the pants.

Looks fine to me. I prefer it to be slightly visible. Otherwise it looks plastic

Thanks for the feedback! Wasn't sure if this was normal. I agree, I don't think anyone would really notice at a distance come to think of it, I'm probably just nitpicking
