For anyone interested, Sunglass huts have started to carry Persol 649/714/714 Steve McQueen edition models here. Of course they are absurdly overpriced, but worth a look (and you can always hit up otticanet after finding your size....). I own the 714SM model in havana/blue and love it. I am a bit sad that they have finally arrived in-store here, though, as they won't be as unique as they were last summer. Thankfully Persols seem to be relatively few and far between in Melbs, unlike the ubiquitous Ray-Bans.
