the hierarchy of adjectives

I read in the telegraph this summer about the natural order of adjectives; it goes opinion-size-age-shape-color-origin-material-purpose. It might sound a little trivial, but if you stop and think, and then try and describe something out of order, it does sound off. For example: today we are driving our white old family cool minivan to thanksgiving dinner... Its wrong! On the other hand, if I had this adorable little cropped black madewell velvet jacket, Id really have it all!
