Interview with castly and Sarah

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
castly: This depended on the severity of punishment. I wore the typical prison garment wear which consisted of bright orange clothing. Each individual cell block qusrters had their own special colored clothing. The reason I knew of this is because there were several occasions when I saw other inmates who were brought from else where in the facility to our cell block living quarters and they ghad different colored appearal.
Sarah: t-shirts and wbite boxers from commesary

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
castly: Yes my uniform was bright orange with letters and numbers on the front and the back. It was loosley fit and very uncomfortable.
Sarah: orange top and orange pants nothing cute

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
castly: I was not aware of a choice in garments wore by any of the inmates. From my understandig you were told what to wear and did not have a choice in your selection of appearal.
Sarah: absolutly not who are you trying to impress

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
castly: I never saw any woman as my place or quarters was all male and no females were allowed.
Sarah: no
