Depending on the material, you could tea stain or give it a RIT dye bath. Taupe looks like it would be a nice shade to adjust towards, but more likely you'd need to mix a dye solution.
Good luck, this is the only way I think the light tan HT and white TS nomex suits will look better, but I never pursued it. So best of luck, I'm eager to see your results.

I figured the TS suit was supposed to look faded, like it had been around the block a few times.

RIT "tan"- Don't over dye it though. Make your dye a bit light, and soak it a bit longer.

Depending on the light conditions (and maybe the camera), wear (and maybe manuf lot?), there seems to be quite a bit of variation in tones -
