Also I can't find cowboy jackets nor civilized ponchos.

Oh, Harold, you really make my day.

Is there such a thing as a civilised poncho?

Yes.  My wife spent countless hours making patches for my  poncho from thick heavy wool.  I  cannot recall if she said it was knitted or crochetted.  Its all the same to me,  It measures 1.3 x 1.2 m.  My wife misconceptualized how I wanted it to look so she had to add on the sides later.   She also made an identical heavy blanket.  My offspring moan if I fetch them from school wearing my poncho, or stetsons or camoflage or purple crocs or a combination thereof.

If that is a pic of your poncho, your wife crocheted, not knitted, it.  It is made up of crocheted "granny squares".  BTW, she did a VERY nice job of it.

Thank you.  She moans if I wear it back-the-front or upside-down or inside-out.   But I cannot tell the difference.  She also knots or crochettes clothes or blankets for worshipful babies and toddlers.  Most have cartoon characters which toddlers will soon recognize.

Only because you do it on purpose.

Frankly, I think the ensemble sounds sensational... but I have been known for odd fashion choices.

If I am not concerned about manufactured "world-opinion", why would I worry about infinitessimal individual sections thereof ?

Are you referring to your own kids?

Yes, kids included, because they are concerned about childish peer opinions.

Alas, I cannot find flares for love nor money.   I detest squashed-up pants with no space to conceal an ankle-holster for my Bill of Rights.

They'll come around again.

I was trying to find my mother a nice, simple - but dressy - top for Christmas.

She has a preference for more tailored clothes.

Unfortunately this season's summer fashions are a hideous mix of 1970's shapelessness and puffy sleeves with floral print.

It's like the 1970's threw up in Oklahoma!.

No. These items are what she needs.
