Fashion trend irks FFA students

FFA Cattlemen's Classic (NTV News)

What do Brooklyn hipsters have in common with kids from rural Nebraska? FFA jackets are a trend in both settings.

As NTV has reported numerous times in recent years, the FFA organization is much more than future farmers, with a focus on career readiness in hundreds of related fields.

The state FFA convention recently highlighted how FFA and ag education have reached all-time highs in Nebraska.

Now Seventeen reports "Your Old FFA Jacket is Officially Trendy."

As the article states, "This is NOT official dress."

A number of students and FFA alumni have taken to social media, to express disappointment that a jacket they take pride in is now seen as a hot fashion accessory.
