It's a pretty neutral color, I'm sure you'd be fine OP.

I think it would look pretty good depending on skin color. If your skin matches the shade of the suit almost, then no. But if you're a good bit lighter or darker then sure.

As long as it's not a blend and the construction is good, I don't see why it wouldn't. Tan/Khaki is trendy right now.

Would you wear boots? It would look better with boots. The taller, the better.

Basically a taupe suit and blonde hair are not seen as authoritative. Therefore, for business, an authoritative tie would help. Of course, with a masculine face and build, apparel color importance diminishes.

Good to know. I would say I have a masculine face and body.

Has more to do with how it effects your skin tone. What are the gold tones in the cloth? Does your skin look healthy or pale against the cloth?

If you wear the suit with a white shirt as pictured it could be problematic. The lightest shirt should be cream or ecru. Shirt color will help or distract from the effect of the cloth color.
