Does anyone know of a company that makes reasonably priced clothes in a somewhat free country? I'm primarily looking for non camo BDU/ACU/cargo style pants preferably in a coyote brown or OD or ranger green color. The few that I have found are usually somewhere north of $250. SKD has US made BDU's for $67 http://www.skdtac.com/SKD-Enhanced-Pant-BDU-p/skd.102.htm  but they only have them in Multicam and tan and I'm looking for something darker. I emailed them and they said they have no plans to produce them in any other colors. It's possible such a thing doesn't exist but I thought I'd throw it out there in case it does.

check out http://www.lapolicegear.com/ They have some great prices on military style pants. Not sure about the requirement for them being from a relatively free country. Hope you find what you are looking for.

This outfit used to carry US made BDU's:
https://vtarmynavy.com/100-cotton-rip-stop-bdu-trousers

I can't seem to find them on the website anymore, so you may want to give them a call- it's quite possible that they don't make them anymore.

You can occasionally find some old OG-107 rip stop pants on Ebay, but not often- and another option are the "civilian protective uniform pants" which are essentially a tan version of the ACU

Crye field pants are less than 250, and are made in the USA.

TAD Gear, made in California so not really a free country, but at least its in the US.

most of there pants are just under or just over $100. Very well thought out pockets and features, much better then your average BDUs.

I quit buying stuff from LAPG because of some questionable business practices. They do actually carry a brand of US made clothing called Wild Things. The pants range from $200-$380.

Good call on the Crye pants. They look promising. Thanks

 Looks good. More options than I thought looks like.

For what it's worth, I found several "Made in USA" BDU options on ebay

The Crye Field's are a great trouser. I have been using those and the Crye Combat trouser for several years. They are worth the money IMO. The padded knees are very functional, and I especially like that they are available in 2" waist increments, and five lengths, so I can get trousers w/ useful pockets that actually fit correctly.
Crye makes quality stuff with very nuanced design. They are worth it if you have the need.

The crye pants are too warm and heavy for most of my use, however the cut is excellent. The crotch isn't too low, and they don't ride down. I removed the calf pockets and frontal thigh pockets on mine, so now they are just cargo pants.

I wore them in the Arizona desert at 100+ degrees, and they were pretty damn warm, but not unbearable I guess. Overall, I am glad I have them.
