From "The Guardian" we learn that Italian mobsters are "humiliated" because they are no longer allowed to wear designer clothing while in Palermo's Ucciardone prison, known to its inmates as "The Grand Hotel" No more Prada, Armani, Gucci, or Versace. No Nike, no Adidias.

Sayeth the Guardian "Prisoners' wives, who were refused permission to deliver designer clothes to the 19th-century jail after the introduction of the new rules, said they were furious.
"My husband will be left naked," said one.
"He only has designer clothes, and that's not because he's flashy but because they last much longer and are better quality. Why humiliate him? Why force us to buy clothes at street markets?"
If the fear of street market clothing doesn't make Sicily's youth straighten up and fly right I can't imagine what would.
