Why are prison jumpsuits so ugly?

Report as

Ugly? I think they're quite stylish...
It'd be rather silly to dress prisoners in designer clothing -- they're in JAIL -- not a GQ fashion show. :)

They are made to stand out, so if they are some where they shouldn't be they are easily spotted.

Because they're cheap and very noticeable . In case of an escape, they want to make sure people know who they are. They're in prison, ugly goes along with the crimes.

Ha, that's what I'm sayin'! The government isn't going to buy $8,000 Armani suits for these charming fellas... ;)

Well, prisons weren't designed to bring happiness to someone, but those bright orange suits are very noticeable. If someone escaped, people would spot the walking orange and report him or her.
