Throughout the years, Bolos have been called many names including slide ties, cowboy ties, gaucho ties, and neck ropes. They originated with Native Americans and since the early 1900's they have been worn through out the Western United States. Arizona was the first state to make the bolo its official neckwear in 1971. New Mexico and Texas followed suit in 2007. Ladies and gentlemen, now is the year to style it your way!
