Real Life Conversations at School: Letter of the Law edition

The backstory:  My school has a dress code and, among other things, the students are not permitted to wear blue jeans.  Leggings are also prohibited.  But, as this recent conversation with a student demonstrates, not everyone agrees about what these words mean.

Me: You know that blue jeans aren't in dress code, right?

Student J: Yes.  These aren't blue jeans.  They're jeggings.

Me:  By which you mean blue jean leggings?  Leggings aren't allowed either.

Student J:  They aren't jeans and they aren't leggings.  They're jeggings.

Me:  You should go to law school.

This is a battle I'm doomed to lose.
