Interview with JD

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
JD: Jumpsuits were the only inmate clothing. Footwear constited of orange sandels.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
JD: Blue jumsuits were for minor offenders and were for people housed in the minor offender PODs. Orange jumsuits were for felony inmates or inmates on behavior restrictions White jumpsuits were for inamte workers on the trustee programs.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
JD: No, clothing is assigned and all one is issued is a jumsuit and flipflop sandals. One could purchase underwear and undershirts from the commissary or family members and friends could bring unopend packages of undershirts and underwear and socks. Strictly white only. So one would initially wear nothing under the jumpsuit until able to commandeer under clothing from the above methods.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
JD: Same classification system determined jumpsuit color for men and women.
