About the stamp designs:  Includes four illustrations of Western attire:  a cowboy hat, boot with spur, shirt, and belt buckle.  Each stamp also includes design elements commonly associated with the American West such as cacti, snakes, roses, and stars.  Original artwork by Ryan Feerer.

First Day City:  The First Day of Issue postmark was from Abilene, Texas, but there was no First Day of Issue Ceremony held.

History the stamp represents:  Western wear was originally worn by working cowboys on the range or ranch.  Over time, it has become a fashion trend among non-cowboys as well.  The United States Postal Service issued four Forever stamps in 2021 picturing iconic clothing items worn by cowboys.  The stamps feature a cowboy hat, belt buckle with longhorn skull, cowboy boot with spur, and a western shirt.  Around each centerpiece are popular western symbols such as roses, cacti, snakes, and stars.

Cowboy fashion became popular with the public when Hollywood began filming Westerns in the 1940s and 50s.  These movies introduced the world to famous silver screen cowboys like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and John Wayne.  As these films grew in popularity, more people became interested in dressing like their favorite Western stars.  This meant an increase in casual wear of cowboy hats and boots, western shirts, and accessories like bolo ties and bandanas.

Today, western clothing can be seen almost everywhere in the United States.  For some folks, it’s a fun way to show off their love of cowboy culture.  For others, it’s the uniform they put on every day before going to work in the saddle.  Western wear is a reminder of simpler times, and it's hard not to smile when you see someone proudly wearing it.
