I saw a mention of Levi's in an earlier post. Please consider carefully before buying Levi's. Levi Strauss is one of the largest corporate sponsors of gun control in America. Might have something to do with being headquartered in San Francisco.....

i've made several orders from LA Police Gear in the past year and everything was delivered fairly fast (within a week)... 1 order recently had an item on backorder but that just took an extra week for that item to come in...
Most recent order was a couple pair of Tru-Spec tac pants that came with a free Surefire G2 ordered Thursday & received following Wednesday...
Sorry some of you are having issues with them...
I've had good luck with LA Police Gear, just received some socks today.

I've also never had a problem with LA Police Gear.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Covert Khakis. Most comfortable pair of khakis I've ever worn. My only complaint with is that they don't come in black (granted I haven't look in a while).
I'm just about due to order a new pair or four.
Also whoever mentioned 5.11's boots was spot on. I was a fan of Magnum for many years, and finally decided to try something new when they discontinued the style I wore. 5.11 ATAC Shield FTW.
I own 2 pairs of the 5.11 discreet tactical pants (regular khaki and their dark 'oak' brown). I love them and they're seriously styled like a set of flat-front dockers. Perfect for office wear. The only issue I had was that on the second pair, the belt loops wew sewn through the portion of the waist that contains the elastic, so the elastic stretch function was eliminated!
I also own about four 5.11 tactical shirts. I love them and prefer them to Blackhawk wear. I own 1 Blackhawk shirt and it's already lost 2 buttons and the buttonholes are deformed. I haven't even had the shirt half as long as I've had the 5.11 shirts.

The vests must be issue for Pima County Probation, When ever I see someone in a ball cap, t-shirt and 5-11 vest I know its one of our SO's or PO's. I work IPS crews and they do checks in impound vehicles, but always the vest's, lol.
You might try Rogue Elite for the Woolrich Tactical line of clothing. I bought a couple of pairs of pants from Jamie a while back and love them. They are similar to the 5.11 clothing line....

The only 5.11 clothes I've bought so far in a pair of the jeans. They fit about like Levi's 505s and are made from good quality, heavy denim but they run a little snug so I'd recommend buying one size larger in the waist.
How do the 5.11 pants fit? Do they run small or large? Are they baggy or slim fitting?
I'm 5'8" 205, and wear 36x30 size pants. I tend to wear my pants fairly fitted and do not like them ultra baggy. I've tried on a million pairs of regular khaki cargo pants and find them feeling like I am wearing MC Hammer pants.
If I order some, I am going to order 2-3 pairs. I just don't want to waste money on these if they are going to be really baggy.

I would love to wear 511 cargo pants, but they just don't want to make them in my size! Definite discrimination against fat people!
