    As far as I know, and I have no special inside info, the Bill Cunnigham film has only just been released here and isn't on DVD yet and the omast film isn't yet finished.

    Really only the Bally "Scribe" range - the rest of their shoes are of pretty ordinary quality, but with a high price attached.

    I think you mean American Tailors.

    American Apparel definitely won't have C&J, but they will have extra long t-shirts in whatever colour you could possibly be after.

    the Bill Cunningham doco was on about 6 months ago during the film festival, i was soo dark i missed it. I'd organised to go with the GF and it never happened, apparently its out at como next week.

    I just thought you might be able to buy it by now online.

    Is there anything else along these lines in terms of doco's that have been out for a while?

    I remember reading somewhere in this thread that somebody here saw PJ and Tom watching something similar to OMAST on their Ipad/macbook

    OMAST looks incredible, it gives me chills!

    The gf and I saw it during the Adelaide Film Festival. Showing was packed with every seat taken. I went in thinking this was some doco by a film student hipster but it's actually incredibly interesting. Torrents are available if you want to watch it now and support the director when it eventually starts to sell on DVD.

    Have to add my +1 to checking out the Bill Cunningham doco. Saw it at the 2010 Melbourne film festival, and I still have a very clear image of it in my head. Such an astoundingly focused and spartan lifestyle he leads, so utterly devoid of distraction. Wouldn't find him on SF!

    Slightly unrelated note but saw a bloke in Martin Place the other day wearing a pair of those Louis Vuitton lace ups with the flower broguing on the cap.... don't normally look at blokes' shoes but he was on the escalator in front of me.

    As for those shoes - they looked like they were falling apart on the poor sod. Definitely not worth $900 odd IMO...
