High-profile figures such as Buffalo Bill's touring Wild West show in the 1880s, as well as Tom Mix and other movie idols of the 1920s and 1930s spawned a prosperous western wear industry that produced fancy inlaid boots and heavily embroidered shirts with western yokes, arrow pockets and whipcord piping. After World War II, fashion elements like pearl snap buttons, bolo ties, tooled belts and engraved buckles spread across the West. Today, clothing worn by rodeo champions and western music stars continues to influence contemporary fashion.
