Interview with Kyle, Randy, Tyler, Dave and Melissa
JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)? Kyle: None. We were supplied two sets of uniforms, two
pairs of socks and two boxers. Anything else
could be purchased on commissary. Randy: YOU COULD NOT BRING IN ANY OF YOUR OWN CLOTHING
WHATSOEVER TO THE JAIL OR PODS. Tyler: We had a set of clothes given to us so no other
clothes were permitted Dave: YOU COULD NOT BRING ANYTHING OF YOUR OWN INTO THE
JAIL TO WEAR NOR COULD IT BE SENT IN Melissa: You have to surrender all your clothing at Booking.
JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you. Kyle: One pair of Shower shoes. You could chosse to
wear your socks or not. Boxer shorts. One
uniform bottom (color to be determined according
to floor and security level) and one uniform top.
The uniform design was very simular to hospital
scrubs Randy: YOU WERE GIVEN TWO UNIFORMS AND WERE THE
STANDARD YELLOW SLIP OVER SHIRT TYPE OF UNIFORM
AND BAGGY PANTS AND UNDERWEAR AND SOCKS AND
SANDALS Tyler: We had jockey shorts or underwear. Short socks
the kind that women wear. A orange jump suit
that was our shirt and summer sandals that were
hard to wal in. Dave: IT WAS THE USUAL JAIL CLOTHING WITH CLOTH PULL
OVER SHIRTS AND CLOTH PANTS. DIFFERENT CUSTODY

white tee shirt, and scrub pants in whatever color your Pod wears.
Blue and White Stripes, Blue, Yellow, and Red were the colors I saw.
JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned? Kyle: Most inmates liked everything big, so most
inmates would ask for nothing smaller than 2XL
bottoms and 2XL tops. Also new socks were a high
commodity Randy: IT WAS NOT SO MUCH CLOTHING BUT PILLOWS WERE
HARD TO COME BY Tyler: Some of the inmates were on work release so I'm
assuming they had different shoes to work
outside the jail. Mow the grounds, shovel snow
would require better shoes than what we recieved Dave: NOT SO MUCH CLOTHING BUT PILLOWS WERE SHORT SO
GETTING THOSE FIRST WAS IMPORTANT Melissa: 3XL Pants. Apparently they are soft and comfortable, even if
inmates were skinny, I saw them asking for those and was told to
ask for them because they were soft.
JM: Was the clothing different between men and women? Kyle: The mens were all solid colors while the women
were horizontal striped uniforms Randy: I DO NOT BELIEVE IT WAS OTHER THAN THEN THE
UNDERWEAR. Tyler: I could only see the jumpsuit colors were
different Dave: JUST THE UNDERWEAR WAS DIFFERENT Melissa: No. Although I'm guessing that the men are not issued a sports
