JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Mish: Jumpsuits and jeans with dickie shirts
Sally: NAVY BLUE PANTS AND VEST PULL OVER AND WHITE SHIRT WITH ORANGE SHOES.
Pace: Rags, if you can score and wash your own duds you'll make out. no one wants to wear yellow stained undergarments. The better the economy the more often they buy new clothing.
Baby: Stinky dirty over sized worn out look like scrubs one per of under wear one bra one pair socks and the dirty suppose to be white shirt I had ever seen. I would take my under cloths and socks off ever night wash them in the sink and spin them dry with my hands then try to hang them to dry on my bench wake up put them on damp for roll call at 40 am
Jamie: `jumpsuits
Gerard: I hate the orange jumpsuits at Orange County jail because it was hard to keep it clean when I had to take a dump. At Musick, we had a navy blue shirt and navy blue pants which is great because it's two seperate garments. Once a week, we got fresh clothes.
Manuel: orange jumpuits and jeans for the workers
LKai: You get a top, pants, boxers, socks, sandals. They're all 2XL. If you want something that fits, you ask the worker that works at the laundry. But you need to gain their respect to request that first.
Josie: none
George: None. We were required to wear the clothes they provided for us and nothing else.
Terry: YOU CAN NOT BRING ANY TYPE OF CLOTHING IN TO JAIL TO WEAR. THEY PUT ALL PERSONAL CLOTHES IN YOUR PROPERTY, UNLESS YOU GET A DOCTOR NOTE FOR YOUR SHOES.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Mish: no
Sally: NO IT WILL BE GIVEN
Pace: Jackets in the winter time
Baby: You act like you have a choice you get one of everything if it fits you or not thats it

Manuel: nah inmates pass the clothes so unless you have connection they give you what they want
LKai: No. You get what you receive, don't make yourself a target by asking for things others don't have.
Josie: new underwear and white undershirts
George: The shoes were really critical. It was very common for an inmate to arrive with shoes that didn't fit, and lots of trading and bartering occurred with that.
Terry: THE BIG SIZE, AND NEWER BLUES WERE IN HIGH DEMAND...4X 5X 6X ECT..WITH CREASES IN THEM.
