So, with a lot of people using speedos or underwear under the hakama, you could take a really funny picture of people folding their hakama on the mat after a big seminar.
Good point !

In iaido and kendo, you are supposed to put on and take off you hakama in the dressing room, never in the practice hall so what you wear underneath stays private. Besides the matter of etiquette, seminars are often on wood floors that aren't necessarily clean enough to lay out your outer clothes anyway like people do in aikido.
