Michigan Jail Ditches Orange Jumpsuits Because Netflix Made Them Fashionable

Due to the popularity of the show ‘Orange Is the New Black’, one Michigan jail has decided to ditch the inmates’ orange jumpsuits and trade them in for something a little more traditional… black and white striped jumpsuits.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel recently announced that he plans to give inmates in his neck of the woods a complete wardrobe makeover, since popular culture has made orange prison attire a fashion statement for the general public.

“Some people think it’s cool to look like an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail … wearing all orange jumpsuits out at the mall or in public,” he said, adding that this is a concern because inmates are sometimes forced to work outside of the jail. “Until there is a new show that’s black and white horizontal stripes is the new black, I’m going to this look. If you don’t like the clothes that I give you, don’t return.”

We wouldn’t care what color the jumpsuit was…as long as it came with a built-in chastity belt.
