I would also say that there's different levels of preppy.

If preppy is overdone then it could look a bit overwhelming for a lot of people. If you overdo it then you would either end up looking like an old man; or even worse, the classic annoying 1980's spoiled douche whose lawyer daddy got him into an Ivy despite mediocre grades:

But when done in moderation, it would be a tasteful, modern, affluent and youthful look:

If you're wearing a pair of five year old beer stained broken down boat shoes....then maybe but otherwise probably not.

There aren't different levels of preppy IMO.....all of it is out of style. Even handsome & super smart lawyers that got into Ivy schools on their own & didn't have rich Ivy parents would look old & awful in it.

An affluent & modern fashionable look is sophisticated & sleek straight lines, for pants & shorts. Just say no to khakis, cardigans, preppy, AND boat shoes......

Boat shoes are great looking casual shoes! I still like the preppy look. Khakis, too.

Much better than the sloppy look so many guys wear today.

BUT khakis are so much more sloppy looking & looser fit than chinos so that makes no sense. They are worn by older men....same with boat shoes.

The straighter lines & hidden stitching on chinos is better looking & more sophisticated on younger or professional men... IMO. It's more fashionable.

Khaki is a color.

You're referring to Men's dress pants/slacks. Slacks, or Chinos, can be Khaki, or navy blue, or red or charcoal gray or lime green.

If someone refers to "Khaki's" I figure they're likely wearing khaki colored Chinos, but not necesarily.

I have been wearing boat shoes exclusively for the last 20-30 years. And they've been the same brand, model and color. I keep one set in new condition, one set in medium worn condition and one with paint and other substances that have dripped on them. I buy them online for $59.

But recently, I started wearing Sketchers pull on shoes with the elastomeric foam padding. I've found they only last 4-5 months, but can be bought for $45-50 online.
