Interview with Striker

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Striker: Underwear and socks were the only items from the outside that we were allowed to retain upon confinement.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Striker: The only clothing items we were issued were a pair of uncomfortable brown plastic sandals and an orange jump suit. If you had the money, you could buy plain white tee-shirts from the commissary.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Striker: Not that I am aware of. The orange jump suits were all identical, and as long as they fit, that's all that mattered.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Striker: No. Men and women alike both wore the orange jump suits.
