JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)? Sparkie: jumpers Craig: If you know ahead of time that your going wear
two pairs of underware and wear thermals!! They
have to be white no colors. That's the most
important advice I can give, wear thermals. It
doesn't matter what time of year you get locked
up the jail is always freezing. Allison: All white only and you could only bring it in if you
knew you were coming and wore it in. Underwear, and
tee- shirts only were allowed.
JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you. Sparkie: jumper, green Craig: You get a green jump suit and slip on sneakers.
make sure they fit when they get issued to you. Allison: Two piece uniforms, a shirt and pants. Some were
mauron and some brown. You did not always match.
Jail issued white sneakers. Sizes were limited.
JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned? Sparkie: ones that fit Craig: No Just make sure they issue you a jump suit and
sneakers that fit. Allison: People hoarded uniforms. You were allowed 2 sets
only and all the girls wanted the brown because they
were a different material and more comfortable.
JM: Was the clothing different between men and women? Sparkie: yes Craig: Yes Allison: Yes. The men wore jumpsuits, 1 piece in a grey-green
