    Hi everyone,

    First and foremost, a big thank you to the guys in the Loake Appreciation thread for contributing to the wealth of information in there [​IMG] Certainly helpful in the shoe purchasing decision.

    My Loake Strand Burgundy arrived 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:

    Being my first foray into Loake shoes, is this acceptable?

    Appreciate your assistance. Thank you!
