when they saw what he was wearing, did they think that prisoners wear the same?
is there one relevant item? more?
did anything relevant make them think he escaped as opposed to being released?

Was there a relevant reason why he was wearing it? Was he an actor playing a jailbird? Did he just think it looked nice? Was someone trying to frame him? Had he swapped clothes with someone? Did he realise it looked like he had escaped from jail?

Was he carrying steel bars? A hinge? A shovel? Some weapon? Was he carrying an object with him at all? He looked like he'd escaped from jail purely because of his clothes? Are his expressions relevant? His footwear? What he was doing? Is anything else about him, other than his clothes, relevant?

was the item on his arm? wrist? hand? neck? head? torso? waist?
did eveyone think that this is what you wear in jail?
did everyone think that this is what you wear when you escape from jail?
is it something that the facility makes prisoners wear? something that prisoners choose to wear? would a prisoner buy it?

Handcuffs? If yes, were they real police handcuffs? The kind you get in toy stores that the wearer can unlock themselves?

Was he handcuffed to another person? To another object? One of his limbs handcuffed to the other?

Was he handcuffed in a way meant to... confine? restrict bodily movement? restrict location? be sexy? part of some sort of S&M fantasy?

Was he playing cops and robbers with his kids? Something equally innocent?

Ok... so he walked in with... one hand cuffed and the other free? One ankle cuffed? Some other body part was handcuffed with just one cuff?

Did it look like the other cuff hand been sawn off? Sawn in half? Was he wearing the handcuff as modern jewelry?

SPOILER
he was wearing a set of hand cuffs on one arm as part of a goth type outfit. There's nothing wrong with this, except that he was wandering around a courthouse with several police cars parked outside
