1906 Spec No. 850
Since the collar is lined, it's spec 850. The buttons should be darkened brass and rimless.
This pattern is the last of the khaki. The 1909 & 1910 patterns were OD.
So it would be made anytime between mid 1906 to early 1909.

I guess what threw me off was the straight cut of the trousers and the earlier style non-subdued buttons (I guess he could have been in a state unit and hadn't gotten the button memo yet). There's a space for "date" on the tag but unfortunately the maker didn't take the time to fill it in. I'm trying to discern the owner's name so I can look him up.
This era is my collecting focus (1900 to 1910 is, that is), so I'm definitely happy with the date of 1906 to 1909.
