Interview with Stacy, Ron and Tom

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Stacy: our jail uniforms
Ron: Nothing. Everything you wear is provided by the jail. THey give you two pairs of everything.
Tom: I can brought in a pair of white socks, a pair of the white t-shirt, and a pair of boxers.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Stacy: Yes it was blue for our pod, pants and top.
Ron: THere was the shirt. A striped inmate style. Pants. Also striped inmate style. Gray socks, and brown boxers. Like I said there were two of everything.
Tom: They assigned me an orange jumpsuit to wear, and a pair of sandals which was not comfortable to wear even with the socks on my feet.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Stacy: Don't think so
Ron: Im not sure what you mean. Everyone got the same things to wear. oh except some people had thermals. Long sleeve shirts.
Tom: I'd say it was the sandals which was in the high demand.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Stacy: They were different for each pod, depending on the degree of the crime, like people who murdered someone wore orange I believe, and they had a pod for the people on work release and I think they got to wear their regular clothes, and had washers and dryers in their pod. I think it was the same for the men
Ron: Nope pretty much basically the same.
Tom: No, they were same for the both sexes.
