IT would seem that there is an earlier use of the word "cadet" as a color, in 1897. The Sears catlogue of that year has, on page 231, advertisements for two shirts (item numbers 267 and 268) that feature "cadet" as one of the available colors in the stripes. No. 267 reads in part: "These shirts have attached collar and cuffs, breast picket, and double yoke back, white background with dainty contrasting stripes of light or dark blue, brown, pink and cadet." No. 268 states: "Very fine blue and white or cadet and white stripes."  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:23, 28 February 2013 (UTC) 

Space navy?[edit]

"This color is apparently a formulation of an impression of the color that cadets in space navy training would wear."

What is the "space navy"? Liz Read! Talk! 13:45, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
