Not so nice, but perhaps okay for the Oxbridge boat race, or Ascot.

The one behind is better, the orange and blue are too vibrant for a suit.

No Ernest, your English is wrong here, if something is faded the colour has deteriorated over time perhaps due to natural light damage, as does happen sometimes to photographs. Insipid or dull would have been fine, but you cannot say the colour is too fade. It is grammatically incorrect. This is because after certain auxiliary verbs, such as can or may, you must use the base form of the verb.

insipid is right, it means the same as fade

It Depends on the occasion, only sporting events would merit the wearing of such a suit, although, as a suit it is even more of a faux pas, as the traditional attire for events such as the Oxbridge Boat Race, and Royal Ascot is a blazer (sports jacket) and not a suit.
