There are lots of choices of colours for the trousers: chocolate, coyote brown, khaki, or dark blue according to the standards. You may want to pick a colour that matches other parts of your uniform.
For the belt it's either tan or olive. These are available on eBay for a little over £10. Just make sure you get the roll pin type, not the black plastic clip closure. I went with an olive belt to match the various pouches I fitted to it that were also olive.

In that case it's a case of choosing my primary colour since I don't have any other major peices yet think I might go with khaki green
And a belt that matches I'll see whzt I can find online and fire up photos just to make sure it's clearable and go from there

Thank you for the guidance as always

May the force be with you

Isn't khaki green just another name for olive drab? I don't think that's an acceptable colour for the trousers. The khaki that is used is more of a sandy tan colour.

I find all different names for essential the same colour when it comes to army surplus as a result of things being from different manufacturers, eras, countries etc

I couldn't find greens in my size so this is what I've come up with

They might not be the exact same shade depending on photo quality but I'll be weathering everything anyway

What do we think go or no go on these 2 items? ImageImage

I would think the trousers should pass as khaki.

The belt is the right colour for khaki and has a suitable roll pin buckle but it doesn't have the vertical loops that a PLCE belt inside out has. They're visible in these images. The buckles we usually smear in vinegar and salt solution and scrub to remove the gold coating.

They are the same pants as mine, they take a lot of spraying as the paint just soaks into the fabric.

As these are for Scarif trousers, apart from weathering a bit, this shouldn't be a problem. It is true they do not like to take colour though as we've seen when using them for Endor trousers.

That belt should do fine when inside out.
