Following the launch of its sustainable upcycled Continuous Collection, bentgablenits is back with its latest upcycled release.

This time around the fledgling label has turned its attention to the jackets of the Future Farmers of America, now known as the National FFA Organization. Once simply focused on aiding youth through agricultural education to strengthen the future of America’s production farmers, with an update in 1988 the organization now reflects growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.

The corduroy jackets associated with the organization have stood as an article of faith, honor and pride that unifies members in a long-standing tradition. In the current uncertain state of the world, bentgablenits looks to remind us that we are part of something bigger than ourselves with its latest release.

Limited to 14 pieces, each jacket has been thoughtfully reimaged by the Canadian imprint, seeking to bring out a new beauty and quality that references the garment’s past life. The blue corduroy base, distinct FFA badges, state markings and past owner notation has been accented by the addition of crushed velvet, textile flowers and knit textural details.

Through a contemporary outlook, bentgablenits has once again repurposed a forgotten treasure in hopes of igniting a cycle that understands the environmental consequences tied to fashion. Additionally, each jacket will come with a protective mask that continues bentgablenits’ decorative aesthetic.

Check out the 1928 Corduroy Farmers Jackets above and look for the release to be available on bentgablenits’ website May 9 at 2 p.m. EST.
