BLACK AND WHITE IS THE NEW ORANGE

 
Posted July 23rd, 2014 @ 9:52am

The success of the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black has apparently made orange prison jumpsuits trendy – and a Michigan sheriff intends to do something about it.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel isn't happy about the way the show has made his prison uniforms "haute couture," so he's demanding that his inmates go back to the "convict era-style black and white stripes."

Federspiel was quoted as saying, "When the lines get blurred between the culture outside the jail and the culture within the jail, I have to do something to redefine those boundaries, because they've been blurred far too often in public culture."

 

No news yet on if the "Hamburglar" look will come back into fashion and he'll have to change the outfits AGAIN.
