The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I found a couple of shirts that would work great for Service C uniforms over at The Sportsman's Guide:

This one has pocket bellows/pleats and epaulets, but has the right shape pocket flaps, and would otherwise serve nicely if you modify the collar:

This one is long-sleeve with epaulets, but would also do nicely. I especially like that the buttons are covered (not screen-accurate but kinda futuristic):

They also have Field Trousers in limited sizes that approximate screen-worn:

Finally, they have these French M51 Helmets. It appears to be a French clone of the M1. I paid almost as much for my plastic reproduction as they're selling these steel helmets for:

Best google the helmet before purchasing. The price is right but the profile, especially from the side is quite different from an American steel pot. Could probably be made to work though with some modification.

“The profile is a little off” is a helluvalot closer than the PASGT helmet I’m working with...

Sorry. Those trousers are completely the wrong colour.

Sorry, Sarge. I guess my fine colour discrimination isn't that hot. I can tell the difference between OD and Foliage Green, but not between "Sand" and "Tan."

You're looking for "rifle green".
