there was a tutorial in max 9 for biped cloth.....not sure if it's in the newer version.....on the road and laptop right now and free wifi.
basically cloth needs to pre-roll about the 1st 30 you would need to slide all your biped mocap keys over 30 frames using the dope sheet. truncate cloth the simulation and start new scene in max.
that's what I can remember from it.Sorry I can't remember it perfectly
but it can be done .

no easy way afaik. as said one way is to offset the loaded pose from default pose a bunch of frames, simulate the transform into loaded pose and set the result as initial shape. alternatively if your collision model is smooth enough(no extreme creasing while in contact with cloth) you can use surface constraint and local sim to do the transformation in first frame but for loose clothes such as you have there simulating it out is a better option imo
