It may sound silly but the MOS suit with lighter shades somehow seems more artificial? As if like food dye was added. The MOS suit texture actually looks a bit like it would be some animal or reptile skin.
I agree that it looks more "organic" with the darker color, but I almost feel that when designing the suit, they were hesitant to show some color
I realize and like the whole realistic aspect they are shooting for, but with the screenshot they showed and the magazine shoot, I have doubts as to how much color it will show when well lit.
So far I don't like how dark the yellow on the "S" is. If they would've used Gold instead of Yellow it would've been better IMO.
At least I know that the reflective chainmail material will allow for a dynamic look in the film which is great, as it's never been done before.
That said, this is just 4 steps to the Reeves color:
I hope that the color would at least match the top right of this pic:
