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.
