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...

Textiles

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
