For true MARPAT, you have to go to the surplus shops and find the Marine Corps issues. These are for the most part hard to come by. I find that Tru-Spec makes a great BDU in MARPAT. And they last really well; I have a pair of pants that have been through three Oklahoma D-Days and that is some of the roughest terrain I have ever played on.
Best bet is get military issue BDUs or anything mil-spec. It is inexpensive and will last for awhile.
