Hi Gentlemen, after some advice if anyone has the time.
I purchased a pair of Loake suede penny loafers a few months ago and have only just got around to wearing them. I just noticed some issues with the suede which seems to to be pilling and there's a crack on the sole. Pictures attached. These shoes have never been worn and I'm wondering if someone can tell me if I should talk to the vendor (P.Lal) about this or am I just being overly fussy?
Maybe there's a way to deal with the suede but the sole bothers me as it may worsen quickly?
