Interview with Victor

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Victor: Nothing except for a white t-shirt if you were wearing one when you were arrested.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Victor: You got two orange shirts, two orange bottoms, two pairs of boxer underwear, and two pairs of socks. Anything else we had to buy off commissary.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Victor: Clean clothes that fit with no stains or rips in them were in high demand.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Victor: No just a smaller size.
