And nylon lining is becoming detached from armhole where the biswing panel is located.

Checking the core internal stitching is still in place.

Should this be a cause of concern?

I replied as I did - since you took the time to post it.
If it irritates you, have it repaired. Jacket itself looks good.

Material failure. It happens. Simple though possibly visible repair, no need for lining replacement. I wouldn't bother sending this back but if Schott can do it for free, shipping covered both ways, then why not.

Free warranty repair or exchange versus out of pocket fix later on? I think free warranty wins.

Mine didn't come apart after 6 months but I did sell it 6 months in because the leather was way too stiff for my liking and the wind flap drove me nuts.

Schott offers warranty? Should I expect to come out of pocket?

You can see the fraying is about to get worst on either side of the hole, the fabric has been stretched to crap.
Have you been doing pushups in your leather jacket or crazy things like that?
