02-28-2008, 12:19 PM
His color is green, no street clothes

02-28-2008, 12:26 PM
he wears green pants with his long sleeve shirt under a regular white tee. and his tan jacket if its cold out =]

02-28-2008, 12:37 PM
He can wear regular cothes(except jeans). Unless he is on a visit than its a polo shirt with green state pants. Those pants do him justice!

02-28-2008, 12:40 PM

02-28-2008, 12:51 PM

02-28-2008, 01:14 PM
Grayish-tan pants and a white T, white sneakers, and a coat to match his pants of he's cold, oh, and some thermals too.

02-28-2008, 01:21 PM
Green, green, green. I really hate this color. He wears green pants and a nice sweater or button down in whatever color is allowed on our visits...sometimes a polo.

02-28-2008, 01:25 PM

Blue pants, blue button up shirt and blue jacket with CDC prisoner on the back and some lovely brown shoes.

02-28-2008, 07:49 PM
Soldado wears the orange jumpsuit(he cuts the sleeves) Marsha Brady Joints(shoes) on his feet complete with the clain link waist shackle and leg irons...He makes that jumpsuit look like ARMANI and shoes Salvatore Ferragamo and the shackles Cartier.

02-28-2008, 10:23 PM
my boyfriend wears a blue shrit and blue paints with orange and a white t-shrit and black lookin dress shoes:rolleyes:

02-28-2008, 10:28 PM
My baby wears his Green pants with a sweater or button up shirt. Usually biege or brown.

02-28-2008, 10:58 PM
his clothes are dark blue and white seakers!!!

02-29-2008, 09:36 AM
State issued blue jeans and a blue denim shirt.

02-29-2008, 11:38 AM
my hubby wears that lovely bright orange jump suit on our visits with DOC on the back. But when hes in the cell he wears shorts and a white t or orange pants and a thermals too and they let him keep his white nikes. lol

02-29-2008, 11:48 AM
In PA they have brown overalls in State. Not very sexy. He is in county, so his visit attire is navy shirt and pants. He kind of looks like he's wearing scrubs.

02-29-2008, 12:36 PM
For visits he use to wear red, but they just recently changed it to tan. His daily clothes are tan and white t-shirt.

02-29-2008, 01:46 PM
So is there a method to this madness? Do the colors mean something? Who chooses the colors?

I'm Real's Lady
02-29-2008, 02:05 PM
On visits my man has tan pants and tan button down shirt with his ID patch on the shirt pocket and the back pants pocket. They look like Dickie work clothes. They can wear white tennis shoes or the state issued work boots.

02-29-2008, 02:38 PM
My honey wears blue pants and blue long-sleeve shirt. He always sais that when he gets out he's never gonna wear blue ever in his life again.:)

In CA blue means that they are mainlined and orange is for reception.

02-29-2008, 08:40 PM
So is there a method to this madness? Do the colors mean something? Who chooses the colors?

In SC they have different colors too.

Orange or Blue= County/Jail uniforms
Yellow= Lock-up/solitary confinement uniform
Tan=normal uniform
Pink= when someone has committed a sexual(lewd) act.

02-29-2008, 09:01 PM
Hmmm...did not know that. Thanks!

Blue pants and blue shirt

03-01-2008, 07:04 AM
I know where my man is they have different colours too:

tan: reception, general population
blue: out-of-state inmates
red: INS

The out-of-state inmates do not receive as many visits, understandably. So it's funny, when I'm visiting him he's the only one in the room with blue, while pretty much all the rest are in tan. People always look at us, trying to figure it out - why's he different? Most of the people (visitors) there don't even realize that there are out of state inmates being housed there.

03-02-2008, 12:13 AM
NYS prison green. Never wearing or owning green again

03-02-2008, 12:19 AM
He wears tan with white gym shoes or gray sweats. Anything he's in makes my mouth water.

03-02-2008, 12:32 AM's county orange jumpsuits for now...when he goes back to prison, it's gonna be tan/khaki pant and shirt (with white tee, white boxers, white socks, white thermal, you get the picture lol).

03-02-2008, 02:09 AM
my baby wears wanna be blue jeans and a blue shirt with a white tshirt under some wanna be van shoes(thats what i call it) and it says cdc prisoner on the back of the shirt and the right leg of the pants

03-02-2008, 12:52 PM
My guy wears blue jeans, white t-shirt and nikes. when in the cell house he wears sweats in navy or grey. for visits its nikes, and a "dickies" like button up and the state jeans. No personal clothes other than boxers, socks & shoes.

Sweetie use to wear a gray t-shirt and orange pants with these ugly brown jesus sandels. But I don't know what he wears now because I'm not allowed to go see him~ he's in processing

03-02-2008, 04:54 PM
Dark green scrubs... 6XL!! LOL.

03-02-2008, 05:49 PM
More importantly,

What do the colors mean?

03-02-2008, 08:21 PM
And what about the jumpsuits that they have to wear to work? Hahahaha, my man here in Corcoran said they have to wear these cream color jumpsuits that I have seen the guys in the visiting room wearing. My poor man, he is way to manly man to be wearing that stuff. LOL I can't help it, it is way too much for me to imagine him wearing. I am use to his creased/ironed blue shirt, with white T underneath, elastic waist blue denim pants with CDC Prisoner written on it, and his state shoes he wears during visiting. YUCK! I can't wait till he gets out to properly dress him. :)

03-02-2008, 10:15 PM
Thanks for the answer I really had no idea why the colors.

Mrs. Evans
03-03-2008, 01:11 PM
He wears street clothes...when he comes in to the visit...he looks so good:drool:

03-03-2008, 01:25 PM
In TX prisons they are only allowed to wear white... I hate it.. But, he looks good regardless!!

I showed one of my girlfriends a picture of him in all white scrubs and she was like - is that one of the guys in your nursing class?? LMAO!! Because in nursing school we are only allowed to wear white scrubs.. I for one will be glad when I can wear colored nursing uniforms and my sweetie can wear street clothes!!! lol.

03-07-2008, 09:50 PM
Tyrone wears blue shirt, blue pants with a white strip down each leg and God awful ankle boots when anywhere outside the quad. In the quad it's blue gym shorts, white tee and shower slides. Either way he is sexy as hell!!!

03-08-2008, 08:26 PM
IN WI its ugly army street clothes

03-08-2008, 08:51 PM
He wears green.

03-08-2008, 08:53 PM
My Kong is a OST from Washington to Arizona. He wears the blue scrubs witht he whitest shoes i've ever seen.

03-09-2008, 03:17 PM
In county it was orange and in prison it's all white.

03-09-2008, 06:27 PM
George wears med. blue pants with white stripe down the leg with light blue button up short sleeve shirt when cold long johns both top and bottom and a blue duck cloth shirt jacket that has flannel on the inside to me its worthless for staying warm in.. with white tennis shoes they can also wear black DOC issue half boots/shoes.

When we take pictures the only way you can tell its a different picture/day is if I am wearing something that I have not warn in our pictures. it does not change.. I have pictures from '99 to '08 the clothes are still the same..

my man's uniform is khaki colored & black boots...

but he has his own clothes he bought at the commisary like sweat pants & sweat shorts, white t-shirts, tennis shoes, etc. which is what he usually wears!

03-11-2008, 12:16 AM
He wears a white button down shirt, with "State Prisoner" stamped on the back, and white pants, both have a blue stripe or something .... it kind of reminds me of a Dickys outfit

03-12-2008, 01:51 PM
nothing but white for inmates in texas

03-14-2008, 08:31 PM
Blue Jeans, white T, and blue botton down shirt.

03-16-2008, 01:32 PM
Blue with Orange stripe

03-17-2008, 11:32 AM
My guy wheres a light blue short sleeve shirt and a white under shirt and dark blue pants this those ugly words down his leg. and some white shoes.

03-18-2008, 08:48 AM
Mine can wear normal clothes. He likes to wear his blue jeans with a orange K-9 shirt. That is a program his is involved in. Very nice. Alot of others wear khaki uniforms. If they have the funds to purchase clothes then they can wear those.

03-19-2008, 07:50 PM
my man wears blue
all different shades! :)

03-30-2008, 10:23 PM
He where's green pants and a shirt during our visits with a white t-shirt underneath. But, while he is in his unit. He can where a sweater or shorts and dress casually with what he can buy at the clothing store in the prison. When he visits he always needs to be dressed in his "greens" as they call it. Ha ha!

03-31-2008, 01:55 AM
Mine gets to wear street clothes but if he does wear a jail outfit it is navy :D

03-31-2008, 10:28 AM
I was laughing about this the other day :D My husband is VERY fair skinned. One lady in chat was saying her man looked like an inside out Oreo in his white prison outfit. I said mine looks like a mayonnaise sandwich :D He is so pale, and dressed in all white. It's just too funny. (in a sad sort of way)

04-01-2008, 04:45 AM
My man has to wear orange jumpsuit type things, and as far as his under stuff it's white t-shirts, underwear & socks. And they have to wear those rediculous flip flops on their feet. Poor guy looks like a human traffic cone!:eek:

04-01-2008, 04:45 PM
I don't think my daughters boyfriend will ever wear orange again, not even if it fits (which none of the prison clothes seem to)

04-01-2008, 07:40 PM
my hubby is in federal. during visits, they wear a tan khaki outfit but during the regular day they wear blue sweatsuits.

04-02-2008, 01:58 PM
Green he hates it i think he looks goood

04-03-2008, 12:47 AM
Wisconsin wears alot of green.

During a fall visit, I wore a Greenbay Packers sweatshirt (It was game day) He commented on it... I told him, " I see you wore green, too!"

04-03-2008, 01:10 AM
My boo wears kind of a burgandy color now- looks like scrubs almost.

My other friend wears jeans/white sneakers and a denim shirt.

04-03-2008, 06:53 PM
my baby wears greens(pants) on visit. they can wear normal shirts just not all colors.

04-04-2008, 11:40 AM
His prison uniform is white.


04-04-2008, 06:39 PM
Baby wears this huge tan jumpsuit that has the nerve to have elastic in the waist. He only wears that for visiting though. He can wear sweats and a tee any other time.

04-04-2008, 08:57 PM

04-07-2008, 07:06 PM

04-08-2008, 03:36 PM

04-10-2008, 06:54 AM
The boys wear GREEN like that...shorts/trackies with white t-shirts

04-10-2008, 07:34 PM
I have heard the pink think! I dont remember what state it was but my teacher was telling me how there is one prison where they were noticing the same inmates returning so they painted walls pink and started making inmates were pink so it wasnt so "homey", though I dont get how prison is homey at all, and the rate of prisons returning went down.

04-10-2008, 07:40 PM
TRCI is blue. Which means that we can't wear jeans [not even a jean skirt], or any shade of blue shirt to the visits. Totally lame.

(I'd love it if he was all decked out in Pink when I went... Haha)

04-10-2008, 07:47 PM
he wears yellows but he can wear his gym cloths witch r like street cloths

04-11-2008, 10:41 AM

04-12-2008, 10:42 AM
(I'd love it if he was all decked out in Pink when I went... Haha)

I would too! In fact I think Chris would like it if he was able to wear pink as well ..... You know what they say, only tough guys wear pink!

04-12-2008, 12:11 PM
My hubby wears a brown color jumpsuit, with a white tee underneath.

Power of Love
The World Is Ours, How Lovely the View, Such A special place for me and you
Our Love Is Tested, Envied by All, Some My Even Pray for Our Downfall
Through All the Storms and, Darkness of Night
Strong Winds Push Us Trying To, Start a Fight
But Deep in Our Hearts, Our, Future is Bright
So We Stay Focused and Keep Moving, Towards the Light
Never Leaving My Side, nor Letting Me Down
On Top of the World, We Will Share the Crown
Love Is:
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18)

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

04-18-2008, 11:22 PM
on the reception yard he wear's orange, then when he mainlines he'll wear blue on blue....

04-19-2008, 06:32 PM
It's white in Texas Dept of Corrections.

04-19-2008, 06:38 PM
I honestly have no idea what my husband wears I have not been able to see him yet. he is in lewis facility in AZ

Orange! The whole state of Arizona DOC is orange! For Prison anyway -

Maricopa County jails are good ole' black and white stripes (with pink everything else.. 'thanks' to sheriff joe)

There has been talk about going to Blue since "they" think orange is too "institutional" ...

04-19-2008, 06:40 PM
My honey wears blue pants and blue long-sleeve shirt. He always sais that when he gets out he's never gonna wear blue ever in his life again.:)

my hubby says that about orange!

04-19-2008, 06:40 PM
I wore blue uniforms with an orange stripe. :)

04-20-2008, 02:58 PM
LOL I need to change my vote...I'm colorblind, or the first few times I got to visit I was too upset to notice, but my baby wears red all the time except at court then its organe

04-20-2008, 04:31 PM
I know when he comes to the visiting room he wears a brown jumpsuit. Its so UGLY! It has DOC on the back of it. When he is inside I know that he wears sweats (in the winter) I dont know in the summer.

04-20-2008, 04:46 PM
i can't believe how many different colors prison in the us have but i would have to say i am glad our state has them wearing the khakis cause even if there not dickie they are still khakis and i like the khaki pants on men

04-20-2008, 11:54 PM
:pmy husband wears blue jeans & blue long sleeves shirt:p

04-21-2008, 02:22 PM

04-21-2008, 02:26 PM
Federal holding was one of my school colors...I hate it now!

04-21-2008, 02:33 PM
In Texas, it is ALL white, white, white white- -except for these black shoes.
Can't belive some ladies wear white pants to see thier man- -he doesn't want to look at MORE white! (plus it sure does wake up the outside picket boss when a "white" clothes person walks out)- -they need to "re-think" their outsifts for visitation.

04-24-2008, 11:14 PM
The last time I seen my baby he was wearing all white So I beleave thats it.

04-25-2008, 12:16 AM
Here in New York they wear state greens.

04-25-2008, 01:09 AM

Not sure what the fashion is in Buckeye, AZ....but I think it might be "TANGERINE" ?

05-18-2008, 01:41 PM
My man has a tan uniform. He doesn't like the tan button up shirt, so he just wears the pants. He usually wears a white T with a wife beater under it, and if it's cold he wears a white long sleeve thermal under the white T. Even though I hate that it's a prison uniform he does look sexxxyyyy in it hehehe :)

05-18-2008, 02:15 PM
My Baby wears NY state greens :(

05-19-2008, 12:40 PM

05-19-2008, 06:30 PM
He wears dark blue pants with a light blue button down shirt. Although he told me that when those get holes and are unwearable, he must turn them in for dark blue nurse scrubs.

The one he always wears for visits is getting pretty worn. Luckily he has a whole outfit that he hasn't used yet.

05-20-2008, 06:02 PM

05-23-2008, 02:19 PM
He wears blue, and no street clothes. I told him that he looks really good in blue but when he gets out, he is NEVER to wear blue again!!:thumbsup:

05-23-2008, 11:16 PM
He went from Orange Scrub to Khaki pants w/ white tee to Orange Jumpsuit. I don't care for the orange Jumpsuit, but I will admit that the first time I saw him in the county he was looking mighty good in that orange scrub.

05-24-2008, 12:09 AM
T wears a brownish jump suit so I picked tan.

My ex wears blue jeans and a blue shirt.

05-25-2008, 12:53 PM
