Interview with Clinton and Brooke

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Clinton: They have two piece hospital scrubs or one piece jumpsuits. They also have these terrible flip flops that they give you.
Brooke: You can bring a wireless bra. i.e sports bras White tee shirts or white long jhons

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Clinton: Red is for max and orange and white are what the trustees wear. General population wears green, yellow or blue (those don't have any special meaning).
Brooke: It was black and white striped with orange letters on the back most of the sizes they had were too large for me so I wore them rolled up. You are issued bob barker shoes

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Clinton: Not really.
Brooke: No. The clothes are issued by a trustee and they do the best they can at the window when you are booked in.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Clinton: Yes they do.
Brooke: NO. not at all. Women and men dressed alike according to what the jail had.
