Actually, you're not turning Japanese, you're turning American, just like the Japanese. They have an asounding reverence for a style that is classically American, from workwear to biker style to engineer boots; from skulls and crosses to jeweled leather jackets and belts. They manufacture the most incredibly accurate and well-made reproductions of everything from 40s and 50s Levi's 501 blue jeans to the motorcyle jacket originated by Schott in 1928. Most astoundingly they make loving re-creations of the leather jackets and other clothing worn by American pilots in World War 2- pilots that bombed Japan, sank their ships and shot down their Zeros. I'm not sure I understand it, but I like it, and I'm gratified by it.
