What underwear if any do you wear with white linen pants?

So I have these Ralph Lauren made in Italy bright white linen pants I'm planning on wearing tonight to a little dance social. They are leaning towards the Purple Label line in terms of fit & quality since these are made in Italy. I'm wearing them with a powder pink short sleeve fitted button shirt with a heather gray v neck and orange boat shoes .

Now this is the dilemma ...most my my underwear are dark colors, navy, black, green etc... I don't have any white underwear for obvious reasons . You can sort of see the dark colors when I wear them and looks a little funny. I tried going commando and it seems to work just fine. It's going to be 91 degrees and this is New York so it feels more like 105. This wouldn't be a problem for a woman but I just don't want to draw attention tonight. Need help.
