Interview with Dave and Miss

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Dave: You only got one pair of clothes, blue pants and shirt. And they only washed them once a week. You had to wear the same thing for the whole week. I broke out a lot on my shoulders and back, it was especially gross if you exercised. You can buy white undershirts and socks. They didn't issue you a shirt. You could only keep your own shirt from the outside if it was white and no logo (some officers were less strict with this when you were in booking).
Miss: They made me take off everything but my top and pants, and glasses.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Dave: See above.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Dave: No.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Dave: No it wasn't different. Except I think they had sports bras.
