Camel colored suede is a bit harder to pull off. I've seen great suede pants in dark brown and dark olive. They can look really nice if pulled off correctly.
The first is an understatement, to say the least. The second works in LA, NYC, *maybe* SF, not in the midwest. Maybe in Texas if you are a real biker and can convince other people those as chaps. Even then, you shouldn't be bigger than a 42L (40L is probably normative) with at least an 8 drop, and really, really, good looking. Saw a guy look great with tan suede pants and a linen shirt though, but he was super fit (and not Ahnold style) and had the right hair (long, rocker style), super hot girl, everything. Of course, if you are David Bowie or Mick Jagger, that's something else altogether. Something tells me you are neither.
