Interview with Tom, Frank and Ashlee

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Tom: orange and white 2 piece jumpsuit
Frank: None. You get a whole wardrobe issue.
Ashlee: Nothing what so ever. The clothes you came in are put in a bag along with your other personnal belongings. And you are given jail attire.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Tom: all there was to wear is 2 piece jumpsuits
Frank: For max tanks you get: Orange shirt. striped orange/white pants, white boxers, white socks, orange Croc shoes. For pods you get: plain white shirt, white boxers, white socks, and a neon greenish yellow jumpsuit that sort of looks like overalls, and grey or green Croc shoes.
Ashlee: Both pants and shirt are orange stripes and bra's, panties, and socks are white. Depending on the time you are jailed you would get an orange sweatshirt.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Tom: Just newly arrived stuff in larger sizes. Since all clothes are the same there is nothing really to get except for new stuff
Frank: socks. people are always wanting socks because they are cheap and get holes all the time. Make sure you get a sweatshirt during the cold season because it is freezing. But besides that, try to just get good clothes. A lot of them are ripped, stretched, modified, etc.
Ashlee: Not necessarily in high demand on the clothes, but the size is what was in high demand when it came to the clothes.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Tom: just in color
Frank: Women get bras and different underwear.
Ashlee: Yes, the men had jumpsuits beside pants and shirt.
