I've seen (in pics) people go there with sport coats or straight off work with suits on.
I wouldn't try this. I always want contrast between an odd jacket and trousers. So any shade of brown I would wear with chocolate brown corduroy trousers would be an obviously different shade.
It's like trying to match navy trousers with a navy blazer. You get it just slightly wrong and you look like a doofus who tried to construct a suit and missed (for that matter, if you should by some miracle get the match exact, you'll still look like a doofus, since the blazer is so obviously not part of a suit).
