You have it backwards there. English adjective order always goes from broad to specific. Word order conveys meaning in English which is why it is not so flexible, but this is one of the more flexible areas. Even if you follow Giovanni's link you can see tradition can be the age (general, only old enough and too young) or the purpose (tradition is kept, in which case this is more specific; there could be many possible purposes). It's open to interpretation, not just wrong, no matter what those misguided pedants might have you believe.
