The blue corduroy jacket worn by
members is a widely recognized symbol
of the National FFA Organization,
formerly Future Farmers of America. In
1933, Dr. J.H. "Gus" Lintner, a Fredericktown
teacher and advisor to the local FFA chapter,
commissioned a jacket for its members to wear to
FFA's national convention in Kansas City, Missouri.
Impressed by the design, the organization adopted
the jacket as part of FFA's Official Dress. Millions
of members have worn it since. Founded in 1928 to
promote agricultural education, FFA continues its
mission in 2018 in all 50 U.S. states and two territories.
