No, and magazines, websites, etc. that try to do that usually lead their followers into some serious mistakes (though of course there are some basic types of items that most men should own). Age, measurements, lifestyle, location, budget, style history, etc. are some starting points for figuring out what direction to take.
No, too much variation among men, but of the four, light/light might be the worst combination for most.
It would help to know if we're talking about a muscular man with overdeveloped legs. Anyway, what about separates from Brooks Brothers? That should look modern enough without the aggressively slim fit of Suit Supply.
Taste and logic are much better than most new-to-dressing-well people show. Still, there are some problems. What if Vass proves to be physically uncomfortable? Then it's multiple pairs that probably will have been bad buys. Also, the shoes all look high-end and high-shine, which might be too attention-getting for the rest of the wardrobe and some circumstances. Finally, even with proper care and repairs, all three pairs lasting more than 10 years is unlikely, between...
If they're not in a feminine color/pattern and are paired with reasonably masculine, edgy clothing above the waist, they can look okay on a slim young man in a fashion-forward environment. Otherwise, they probably will look silly.
Wear linen, because it probably will be hot. Although many tourists wear them, avoid shorts if trying to look stylish. Shorts generally are frowned upon in Europe. Bring an odd jacket (maybe a 1-button) for not-so-hot evenings, because that's what many men wear to nicer establishments.
For someone with an overly large upper torso, boot-cut jeans might actually be better than straight leg. (Definitely avoid skinny jeans.) Anyway, it wouldn't be hard to come up with something decent, provided the fit is made right. The harder part is figuring out what specifically that style is, for age, location, occupation, etc. have not been stated. This isn't the section for haircut advice, and the pictures so far don't show enough of the face to enable informed advice...
Bad news first: it's time to be concerned about a receding hairline. That said, for now it's still an attractive head of hair and shouldn't be cut short. And yes, the forehead shouldn't be highlighted. Here's an idea for older but still youthful... http://www.altfg.com/blog/movie/robert-pattinson-vampire-edward-cullen-photo/
If they're dull olive, yes, "pretty versatile." There is some risk when paired with reddish or yellow clothing. If it needs to be said, don't wear green with green.
In that situation, if a man is average height with average proportions, there's almost no restriction on pants color if the tie (maybe not included) or perhaps shirt is attention-getting. If for example the legs are long (in absolute or relative terms), then mid-gray, medium brown, and dull olive would be the best options. With tan shoes, it's especially important to make sure the clothes put most of the attention near the face.
