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.
