Photo looks like light brown but they are definitely a light olive green; much lighter than US Army green. To me, the color and fabric looks likes old-man pants (dockers-style). It's impossible to match the earth tone with any shirt I have. I bought the camo's in my usual 31" but they were just a little tight so I bought the Army color in 32" which is way to big for me. I will wear the Camo's again and I'm going to try to wash the Army's over and over to see if they fade and shrink. The material is very soft, like a laundred or stonewashed chino pant. I was expecting a stiffer fabric. I like the single button on the cargo pockets. I can't find a single shirt in my closet that looks good with the Army green color:( Compare my photo to the website photo. Big difference.
