That's a great story, thanks! Although I never had a Cavalier jacket (my mom said they looked too much like "gang" jackets), I'm tempted to buy one now. My very first!
A friend of my parents, Helen, used to say that when the Cavaliers came to Rockford and marched in the parade, she said: "And here they come, so straight and tall and proud!"
Well, as the French March song, which the corps played in 1961 and 1962, went:
"...handsome Cavaliers marching by...."
Yep, I just may order my jacket, although I don't know where I'd ever wear it.
