propre et fin word order

For the translation of 'thin, clean' does it matter which order the adjectives appear in French ?

Hi Tom, 

I don't think there is a specific rule for this but often it is stylistic, as it sounds better just like this example -

un linge propre et fin 

rather than 

un linge fin et propre

and the emphasis being on the 'clean' I think too.

Bonne Continuation!
