One option you may not have considered is to look into international scout
uniforms. If I recall correctly, I think the BSA pants are a similar colour
to the new Australian scout pants and shorts ("moss green" is the name given
to the colour in our books - a little similar to olive drab, but slightly
more brown/khaki). I'm not quite sure what is meant by "cargo" pants, but we
have two styles of trousers available; dress trousers which are styled just
like any other trousers, and the other style which have pockets similar to
jeans and a large pocket with button down flap on the side of the leg. If
this is the type of thing you are referring to in describing "cargo pants"
then if no other sources are forthcoming perhaps you could order Australian
Scout trousers. If anyone is interested in checking this idea further please
email me privately and I can post you a photo of myself and my fellow
woodbadge project team members in our uniforms that will give you an idea of
colour and styles.
