Even the good version looks completely exceptional. You wouldn't wear that unless it was cosplay because it is supposed to look ridiculous.
I don't think it's for everyday wear. Anyone who would wake up and decide "I think I'll wear a vault suit to work" is probably pretty stupid and likely to get mocked... and fired.

Only humans wearing the blessed garment will be spared from Todd Howard's infinite wrath during the Day of Judgment. $276 of temporal wealth is a pittance to absolve yourself in the eyes of Him.

Big difference between what the fan costumes and what Bethesda is selling - the fan costumes are explicitly for dress-up of men/man-children, while Bethesda seemingly expect people to seriously were their dumb leather jackets out in public.

Here's Angry Joe in his Fallout costume:

Obviously not leather, real or fake, but still doesn't give (a big of a) douchey vibe as the Bethesda jacket.

Never a good sign when a lolcow can do it better than your multi-million dollar corporation.

Also, looks like Joe also got 72 (lbs) bigger, lol fat joke.

Now I want to cosplay as a raider find some idiot wearing one of these at a con and cap him in the ass with an airsoft rifle.
I'm actually making my own shitty raider armor for the fuck of it. Been gathering the shit for years because it's rather low priority for me. So far I've got a set of beat up old Douglas football pads, a gas mask, a spiked leather glove, a tire I'm slowly but surely hacking apart for pauldrons and kneepads.
I plan to eventually go out to Wasteland Weekend and I'm not going as some normie fuck.

This game looks like shit and there isn't really anything but the vault suites to make actual clothes for.

They probably could have made a small fortune selling the merch for New Vegas if they cared to.

Bethesda hates New Vegas because it showed up all their flaws when a less well funded company does it better using their shitty engine, it's why they only mention it when they have to.

I don't think Bethesda has any special antipathy towards New Vegas. They just don't give a shit about any of their games once they've secured the launch sales revenue.

I think they dislike New Vegas because it's a superior version, but also a few key people at Obsidian were pretty vocal about how shitty their pay was from Bethesda (they famously lost a bunch of money because NV had a "84" on metacritic instead of "85") which likely soured relations between the studios.

Bethesda went on to make their own fallout (Fallout 4) that was pretty lackluster and deliberately went backwards on some of NV's game design choices (example - NV had changeable ammo in combat that did different things like Armor Piercing, FO4 tied those abilities to weapons so you would have to go to a crafting bench to change properties) for no particular reason. Bethesda then shit out FO76 and Obsidian got bought by Microsoft, so there will likely never be an official Obsidian fallout.

At this point it's uncertain if the people at Obsidian can make another Fallout. Some of the key people behind FO (Tim, Josh) are there but quite a few others are gone. We'll see how Outer Worlds turns out, cause there's a big hole for sandbox RPGs in the market that only Bethesda really fills and people are now starting to turn on them for turning their games into shallow shooting/stabbing galleries. If that game somehow becomes an actual threat for Bethesda, things will definitely get interesting.

Josh is there but he's allegedly only there for Outer Worlds in an advisory capacity.

I think they can do it, primarily because even if it's not perfect - Obsidian has shown as a company they at least consistently give a shit about the games they put out; even if it's in a series they don't like (Star Wars) or if it's for a niche audience (Pillars of Eternity). Them giving a shit will put them a full head and shoulders over Bethesda who has been treating Fallout as nothing but a blatant cash grab (between FO76, Fallout Shelter's Paid Lootboxes, and Fallout 4's mediocre base game and $50 mediocre season pass). Even with Josh in an "advisory" capacity I expect the experience to be tight and fun, similar to NV.
