Tall AND fat husband needs durable, non-cargo work pants for two jobs.

He's 6'3" and somewhere between 310 and 320 lbs now. Current size is 46x34. Job #1(appliance delivery) requires some color of khaki with no cargo styles allowed. Job #2 (grocery stock) requires black.
We have rarely been able to find suitable pants or jeans locally that fit even at smaller waist sizes. Big and Tall here seems to be Big OR Tall. LL Bean and Land's End are being considered but he wears through the inside thighs very quickly so cheap is also a requirement.
Ideally, I want to find a supplier that has the same style with the correct fit in black and khaki, and will not discontinue them next season.
5.11 Tactical used to have a Covert Cargo style that he loved, now discontinued and replaced with visible stitching on the cargo pockets even though the pockets are internal.
