Interview with Darrell

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Darrell: Unless you where a trusty you wore a two piece outfit (A pajama like shirt and pants in dayglow orange.), trusties wore different colors depending on where they worked (White for kitchen, brown for outside crew, etc.). I was only allowed 3 pairs of boxers, socks, and tee shirts.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Darrell: It was two pieced, orange, and there where no buttons, zippers, or ties. The pants had an elastic waistband and the shirt was a pullover with no pockets. The pants also had no pockets. Also, you where doing good if you got a set that fit. I'm tall, and the pants where always too short, and way too tight.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Darrell: If you knew someone in the laundry, for a fee, they would do your laundry separately. Usually this was the only way to get some decent clothing (Ones that were new, in good shape, and fit.).

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Darrell: Unknown, but the girls wore pink.
