A lace came untied on on my pigskin slipons in late April and in my clumsiness I somehow managed to trip over the thing and tear the tassel off without noticing, meaning I had no choice but to return the shoe for repair. Having received my education about shoe turnaround times from a Northampton maker that takes six months to do anything asked of them, my expectation was that I might be able to wear the things again once before the end of the year which was disappointing since I'd only had them for a couple of weeks.
Lo and behold, the repaired shoe arrived less than a month after it was dispatched which is nothing to sneeze at when you consider that it must have spent two weeks of the intervening time in transit.
Thank you to the gentlemen at G. J. Cleverley.
