Well, Terra's pants are similar to hakama, but they aren't straight-up traditional hakama like you can buy for martial arts. And yes, they are khaki.

You're probably not going to be able to just go to a martial arts or Asian clothing supplier and buy khaki hakama, or khaki anything that looks like hakama. You're better off having it custom-made, by yourself or by a commissioner if you can't do it yourself. They are really weird pants, I helped someone dissect them once to figure out how they were going to sew them, and they're a weird hakama/jeans hybrid.

Americans must have a different idea of khaki, because those pants look tan to me.

Generally speaking, going off popular dress pants brands, khaki is the name used for any shade of tan from slightly ecru to genuinely khaki to suntanned. Yep. And it's more likely that if I took a bolt of cotton twill or bottomweight off the rack, thinking it was the right or nearly-right color to make Terra's pants, the bolt would label the color "khaki." Not always, but often. Six of one, half dozen of the other if you ask me.
