Has been a long time since black and white was for prisoners, it is all orange isn't it. Now i don't like orange and that would be an extra punishment for me at least. Mimes I have seen wear whatever they like. Things are very different in your part of the country
really it is all orange here. differences all over eh??
So are mimes prisoners then...I knew they were some shady bastards
that was no mime
So I had to look this up, obviously, knowing how cool mimes are, and what I found is a disappointing disconnect between the history of “prison stripes” vs “mime stripes”:
Prison stripes did originally symbolize bars, but all the variants of prison uniforms (striped or not) were primarily meant to be of a contrasting design from guards’, even from afar.
As for mimes, though, they did use it for the interesting purpose of optical illusions on a horizontal or vertical plane.
