Now more apt than ever for Halloween, American Apparel just debuted their line of jewelry metal chains. As with their overstock sunglasses, AA didn't actually make these but instead "found" the lot at the Esse-Pi Factory in Milan, Italy. All pieces are made of solid metal and then gold-plated (read: cheaply made), with necklaces at $48 and bracelets at $20. Judging from AA's suggested outfit pairings above, they're out to corner the market on '90s nymphomaniac hip hop groupie costumes. Now what you've been waiting for: a superfluous picture of Mr. T.
