В українській мові є можливість змінити порядок слів: "це коричневий костюм не його".

No, that sounds wrong. If you said "Цей коричневий костюм не його", that would work, but it would be a different sentence ("This brown suit is not his").

Це is the subject of the sentence which is saying "Це ≠ його коричневий костюм". Shuffling the words like that makes it ungrammatical.

Why does "карий костюм" not work?
