Concerns about OEM timing belt

My mechanic was concerned about the stitching on the timing belt. To me it looks intact. I ordered it brand new from autoeurope sales.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

It looks ok to me ..not a problem

and its actually the alternator belt, not the timing belt so if it did go it would not lunch your engine

Cheers
