Interview with Pat and Sam

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Pat: You must wear county issued clothing or something bought on commissary such as sweat pants.
Sam: In the county jail, no clothing can be brought into you from the outside. You must purchase additional items on the commissary.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Pat: the uniform when you first come to intake or when you're in immigration is a jumpsuit that a workingman or painter would wear. When you move to regular population, its a green tshirt and blue/gray pants.
Sam: In the county jail, they give you dark green pants and light green t-shirts. You're allowed to wear your own shoes from the street pending they're not steel toe boots.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Pat: all clothes are the same and handed down. you dont get a new uniform.
Sam: Mostly, everyone looked forward to getting clothes that fit as they sometimes hand out anything that looks like it would fit.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Pat: all inmates wear the same exact thing.
Sam: No, everyone wore the same clothing.
