Is this actually the first wear? And it looks like loose grain?

Yes. First wear outside. I've only worn them for an hour inside. I'm a bit concerned on the creasing...

I don't have natural light right now, but I will take a close up picture again. I was referencing photo 3. It is hard to zoom in enough to show the stitching.

Give me a bit: eating supper momentarily. I'll update this evening.

So picture 3 wouldn’t show anything about whether it’s glued, hand welted or Goodyear welted. You might want to check the archibald forum or my thread I posted here earlier today and it’ll give you a better idea of what you’re looking for.
