    The trousers you have are officers pinks and would go with an officers belt here are pictures for comparison.

    There are generally 2 shades of canvas "green" used in WWII by the US OD3 (similar to khaki) and OD7 which is the dark green. OD(olive drab)3 was used for most of the war and in late 1944/45 OD7 started to make its way to the front.
    If I were you I would get an OD3 officers belt, far right in the picture. These belts were labeled officers in the book but they were also issued to EM for class A and B (Khaki) uniforms.
