Interview with Louisa

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Louisa: Black and white stripes. It was like hospital scrubs but thicker.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Louisa: See above.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Louisa: They initially give you one t-shirt, 1 pair of panties, 1 bra and 1 pair of socks. You can buy extra off canteen. You can ask for more from your counselor and after awhile you could get more. If I would not have purchased mine, I would have had to wait 2 weeks to get a second pair of underwear. You can get up to 5 of each. Change out on the black and white stripes was only twice a week.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Louisa: Same.
