All these might be white mostly because the color of the thobe is also white and wearing any other color will make the undergarment prominent than the actual thobe.
Depending on the weather, people may opt for long-sleeved shirts or thicker material pants to protect them from the cold. The pants that they wear are also referred to as “sunnah underpants”.
