Uh, yeah, what agent86 says, what about the other half of you?what about your pants and boots?
The boots are great, but honestly, jeans are worthless in a crash. I've seen too many people loose too much skin, sorry. You should really consider getting some riding pants.^ already posted above.
I wear full leather over the ankle boots and jeans.
I work in the emergency room a lot, trust me even riding pants can result in losing skin. Not defending my jeans, just saying. Realize I just got my bike in November, i'm sure ill end up with some pants eventually but for now it's still better than being a squid who rides around with no gearThe boots are great, but honestly, jeans are worthless in a crash.

Kevlar reinforced Denim definitely helps, but only way you're gonna truly be saving your skin is with leather pants, which not too many people are fond of.
I know your boots are over the ankle, but are they motorcycle boots? They'd have reinforced ankle support.
Never saw a helmet like that, definitely will help keep you noticed
http://www.dragginjeans.net/Mens/Men-s-Twista/flypage.tpl.htmlI've been eyeing these jeans: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-d1-kevlar-armor-ready-jeans
The previous D1s have padded knee protection, but nothing substantial. These new ones can have real knee protection for the maximum safety you could get from a jean. Unlike other jeans that are simply a heaver denim with a kevlar patch sewn into the high abrasion areas, these have kevlar woven throughout the fabric + the patches. I also like the length. I'm skinny and tall and always have problems finding jeans that fit me.
With the styling, and woven kevlar, they are really pricey, but I'm probably gonna save up for a pair with the added armor.
I could definitely see the "Mom jean" reference about draggin jeans normal cut typically from the US branch, but I do beleive there is a major difference between the products offered from the AUS dragginjeans.net and the US one dragginjeans.comI was reading reviews on those dainese jeans. Someone mentioned that they got the Draggin Jeans, and felt the Dainese ones fit better, more slim. Described the Draggin Jeans as "Mom's jeans"....
In fact a few larger people, like 230+ pounds complained that the Dainese jeans were a bit tight around the thighs, but I'm little so I think it's made more for my body type. I already have riding pants, but these would be more for casual rides where I don't want to stand out too much once I get to my destination (hate having to change out of regular pants!).
