Best shade of khaki?

I'm always trying to spend my budget wisely when it comes to fashion choices, and also trying to have the most versatile minimalist wardrobe I can. With that in mind, I'm wondering if someone could provide me a recommendation between two bonobos chino color.

Their "The Khaki" color is probably the most versatile chino color there is:

But the "Ginger Roots" color is heavily discounted right now and is a similar shade:

It's hard for me to gauge if the more yellowish Ginger Roots color is going to be as versatile as the base Khaki color. If so, I'm thinking I might as well take the savings. I'm trying to get the most bang for the buck with a very minimal wardrobe. I have an olive, I'm adding one of these two, and will get a stone color in the future.

Thoughts?

your links point to the same page.

If you are only going to get one pair, the "Ginger Roots" color is not going to be as versatile as the khaki color. Since your goals are to be as versatile and minimalist as possible, then don't compromise on something like this.

Not too sure I was checking the links posted above and I do find it blue, none khaki though; I would go for the
cognac color, best shade for me
