This should answer the question as to the starting price of the new RLPL "entry" suits:
I don't see a ticket pocket, but the one visual difference I do see are side tabs below the waistband, which make me wonder if the new ones have a slightly longer rise (hoping). Also, when staring at racks of suits, trying to differentiate "new" PL from "traditional" ($4k+) PL, look at the sleeve basting. The "entry" suits have one row of stitching which runs parallel to the sleeve itself, while the higher end ones have an "L" shaped basting.
According to the Barneys description, the above model has a 10.5' rise.
This older model has a 10.25' rise.
