JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)? Lou: White jumpsuit. Cindy: Can't bring anything in. I got to keep my underwear
a couple times, never my socks.
JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you. Lou: Orange jumpsuit was for state charges. Cindy: We wore blue tops and pants that looked like
hospital scrubs, they were navy blue, had a pocket
on the side. If you were a worker you got issued a
red jumper that said CCSO INMATE or something like
that on the back of it, socks, and white shoes that
had three bands of velcro.
JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned? Lou: You can't wear free world outside clothes. They
don't do that here in Texas. Cindy: No, We always had enough of everything, and then
some. Sometimes I got extra socks. If you were
indigent and had spent a long time in the jail they
might issue you socks and bras, too.
JM: Was the clothing different between men and women? Lou: I believe so they wore the white jumpsuit, too. Cindy: Men wore green jumpers, the same socks and shoes,
only bigger. If they were workers they wore red.
