As far as I know, the color of the uniform doesn't really matter in regards to the 'quality' or 'meaning' of the martial arts style, it's just a preference by the school/styles. The traditional styles tend to stay with the traditional color (white) while other styles prefer not to. It doesn't really mean anything.At my former dojang, I remember that we were issued white in the beginning and then once we became black belts we could wear a black dobok or a white dobok with a black trim. Then once you became 2nd Dan, you could wear the blue dobok. 3rd Dan was a red dobok and 4th was a white dobok with criss-cross black stripes covering the jacket. ....so stylish. lol
However, at my friend's dojo, they are allowed to wear black pants (I think only if they are black belt but I could be wrong) however, only his Kyoshi can wear all black. They all have white gis however.
This is not necessarily a mcdojo/mcdojang thing. I guess it's schools or organizations that simply have a look that they want. There's not necessarily anything wrong with it but for me, I never understood the point. Black or White doboks/gis...those are the only two colors that I would ever have if I had my own dojang.
Jhoon Goo Rhee has a gold dobok and I've seen purple and mixed colored ones too...so believe it or not there are people that really go over the top with it.
