Interview with Kandra and Paul

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Kandra: No items from the outside are allowed into the jail. All clothing is removed from you including socks and underwear.
Paul: NOTHING, its totally prison issue uniforms, even the shoes and underwear, socks are also prison issue

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Kandra: I did not have to "dress out" at Atlanta City Jail but when I was at Fulton County the uniform was blue. The uniform changes however when you go to the hospital or if you are a high profile case.
Paul: brown pants and shirt, white boxers, white soxs, brown boots unless your a problem inmate then you wear a one peice uniform with the color of your restrictions

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Kandra: The most items in high demand are t-shirts, underwear, bras and socks. Inmates are limited to a certain number of each and if found to have more than the allotted then the extras are taken away.
Paul: no, the inmate doesnt have a choice of clothes to wear

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Kandra: No. At Atlanta City Jail I did not "dress out" but when at other jails the attire is the same for men and women.
Paul: no, the same except for bra's
