Cavalier was closer to Playboy in that it seemed to be among the higher echelon of men's magazines—general interest magazines that just happened to have nude photo spreads. Like its competitor Playboy (and to a lesser extent, Esquire), many of its cartoons were full-pagers in color by cartoonists who also concurrently drew for New Yorker and other un-embarrassing magazines.
These next few are from Cavalier volume 14, number 131, May 1964

I've been told this DeCarlo I've been printing in my look at men's magazines every week is not Dan DeCarlo as I've previously been saying. It makes sense now since it looks nothing like the Archie-esque comics he was doing at the same time, which he's always signed with his full name or initials. It seems like a venue he'd work in, but there's no evidence he actually did. Sorry for saying so before.
The October 1960 issue of Ace
