They look like armoured jeans, not textile trousers.

What do you want them for?

Motorcycle jeans should be comfy and okay for riding in the summer (but not in the rain). Protection may be worse than proper textile trousers but they are more comfy if you stop riding in the middle of the day and go for lunch etc... price wise they tend to be fairly expensive for what they do...
If you want all weather trousers you need proper textiles. They usually give better protection too. If you are short of money look on ebay but only bid for good quality goretex stuff. Non goretex stuff tends to be cheaper made and doesn't stay watertight as long...
I have some cheap textile trousers that I bought new from both Weise & Frank Thomas and both are okay for normal riding but more than half an hours rain will leak through. My five year old goretex trousers will last over an hour in heavy rain without leaks and cost me £60 on ebay...

I tried spada flage textile trousers for commuting as they are reasonable at £50. Was really impressed I now have a couple of pair, warm, water proof and very practical! Also they look good in the white and dark version... Not the green in my opinion! Also I use them all the time for riding now as they are so good

My experience of wrap jeans

Hi all,
I purchased a pair of Lindstrand Jeans nearly 2 years ago and wore them approximately 5 times before they appeared to deteriorate, ripping easily and denim going powdery leaving elastic fibres. They had never been wet or come into contact with anything other than in normal road use. I returned them to John at Jofama who gave this reply:
I’ve now had a chance to examine the jeans visually and it does appear they have come into contact with a corrosive substance of some kind. I could not see any staining at all. The Jeans cost just over one hundred pounds.
Most noticeable on the left leg, a stain is quite visible around the damaged area. Because the colour difference of the stain is only slight, it’s difficult to see unless under bright light. 
Yet further confirming the opinion of a corrosive substance, the HiArt material underneath the outer denim on the knee area of the right leg has also been affected slightly and comes apart when tested.
I am sorry to say, we cannot take further action. 
Due to the nature of the damage, I think it is safe to assume there is no need to worry regarding the quality of any other garments unless they too have come into contact with the same substance.
Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.
