Man, these Guido-wannabes and even the Biker/Elvis/50's style wannabes in Japan who take this stuff DEAD SERIOUS freaks the hell out. And it's even worse for my parents and older folk. They are treated like criminals. lol. I wouldn't go that far, but man... There really isn't much stopping the people in Japan of 'copying' certain foreign looks. Americans get into a tizzy if we attempt something like that... Unless they pull it off so well like most of the cast of Jersey Shore, who are not even Italian heritage or even live in Jersey (Like half of them are New Yorkers).
