The origin of the mens western tuxedo probably dates back to the 1940s when the Texan social organizations held dances. The dress code for these dances would be black tie with boots. One of the event that was very famous for the cowboy themed clothing was the Black tie and boots inaugural ball that was hosted in Washington. In 1989 President Bush attended this inaugural ball in cowboy boots that were decorated with presidential seal. By 2001 the younger Bush also attended the inaugural party following the same tradition. The black tie with boots is the simplest form of the western formalwear. But in recent times there is a new hybrid in the market and this is called the western tuxedo.

You can add some patterns to the look but when you aim for the formal look it is best to keep it plain.

The tie is a must when it comes to the formal events and you have different options for choosing them. People who want to stick with the traditional look can go with the formal bow tie look. But if you want your outfit to be truly western style then we would suggest you to choose a western themed bolo or a string tie. This will induce a slightly casual look but it would also provide you with a stylish and more youthful look.
