It seems that many of you missed the memo, so here it is:
MEMORANDUM FOR ALL PERSONS
FROM: the philosophotarian
Leggings are not pants. Leggings = undergarment. Alternatively, leggings (like flip-flops) = verboten. Do not wear leggings in place of pants, skirts, shorts, kilts, etc., unless you are a method actor in a production committed to historically accurate clothing. In which case, I expect to see codpieces.
