 The short answer - no.  I believe that there's one cobbler in Sydney and perhaps Double Monk in Melbourne might also fit sunken toe taps.  However, the real question is why, apart from aesthetic appeal, do you want sunken toe taps? The regular toe taps work just as well as sunken toe taps, are cheaper and easier to install, can be easily replaced if necessary, and can be fitted by pretty much any cobbler.  So, while I understand that sunken, or flush, toe taps look much...
 Rather amusingly, that was a sort of re-edition of a previous, limited-edition Snoopy Speedmaster that Omega released in 2003 - so we've already reached the stage where Omega are digging into their limited-edition archives to come up with new limited-edition Speedmasters!  Different dial and caseback, admittedly, but still with Snoopy on both the dial and caseback. The original Snoopy LE Speedies didn't sell well at first and some of them languished in stores for ages. In...
  I'm glad to see you wearing a bowler hat because, as we know, they are a staple of contemporary men's fashion. I am, however, disappointed that you are not wearing button boots, or at the very least balmoral boots with a pair of spats. 
 Co-incidentally, the only time I've ever seen people walking out of a movie was while watching Cronenberg's adaption of "The Naked Lunch" in the early 1990s! 
 This isn't an answer to your question, unfortunately, but I used to love visiting a little store tucked away at the back of the basement level of the Hanae Mori building on Omote-sando dori in Harajuku, in Tokyo. Regrettably, the Hanae Mori building - designed by Kenzo Tange - was demolished a few years back to make way for luxury retail and apartments.  The ukiyo-e shop was run by a little old lady who had piles and piles of ukiyo-e in cardboard folders stored on almost...
 Interesting - looks as though it will be good.  If anyone happens to be in Tokyo (or Japan in general), a new Hokusai museum opened in Tokyo late last year: http://www.curbed.com/2017/1/9/14211854/sumida-hokusai-museum-tokyo-sanaa-kazuyo-sejima There's also a dedicated Hokusai museum in Nagano Prefecture, in the middle of the main island of Honshu, about two hours outside Tokyo, that's worth a visit if you're travelling in that area. In addition to Hokusai's "ukiyo-e"...
 On the one hand, I entirely understand this view. On the other hand, from an intellectual, rather than emotional and social viewpoint, it's really very interesting and it really speaks to the power of marketing and branding and how very, very influential those two things can be. 
 I really enjoyed "Rush".  Yes, the relationship between Lauda and Rush was played up a bit too much - it did exist, but not really to the extent portrayed in the film - but the racing scenes were really well done, and Bruhl was great as Lauda.  This was my absolute favourite scene:

 Very true - it's meant to be oversized.  However, whenever I see it, all I can think of is how the large crown would dig into the back of my hand all the damned time!
