Well, if you say "I like to use jeans", the person you are speaking to will reply: "Use them as what?"
For example, I might use an old pair of jeans as a rag for mopping up spilled oil. Or if I was stranded on a desert island, I might use my jeans as a signal to wave to passing ships.
The sentence is incomplete. You would have to say, "I like to use jeans as clothing", but why say all that if you can simply say, "I like to wear jeans"?
