Interview with Rick

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Rick: Underwear was white. All the shirts were blue. Denim pants. Typical.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Rick: Just what they gave you.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Rick: You could get ball caps or beanies in the canteen. You could also order from a catalog but it had to be blue.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Rick: No women up there.
