They don't make the jeans stylish enough for Wes. The nearest he will wear to protective jeans are some Dethkillers.

Wes is an odd duck. He wears a ton of gear, more than most people I know, and swears by its use. However, around town, he's unable to overcome his need to look a certain way. That's why he doesn't wear good leg protection, but he still wears a separate full coverage back protector. Both may be subjectively ugly, but only one is readily visible.

The perceived pressure of the world around, either society as a whole or our peer groups, plays a big role in safety gear choices for everyone. Most won't admit that, though.

With how easy they are to get on/off, there is no reason not to wear them.
If you don't mind, could I ask you where you found them for that price? I've been searching around and seeing then in the $140-$150 range.
