None of the selvage jeans are going to say "selvage" on them and Authentic is simply the fit name.
Authentic is a brand new fit so they are not a redesign, simply a different pair of jeans. Yours are the Authentic bucklebacks in what I assume is rigid. Those are not on gap.com that I have seen.
I have yet to see the full line of "elevated" denim in one place in order to give you guys a proper run down, but I will see what I can do next week.
I saw the rigid denim jacket today and it's pretty cool, especially for the price. It will definitely make a cool project to break in. I know I will never give it the wear it needs and thats the only reason I didn't get it.

Mine have knee bags but no worse than any of my levi's and definitely not like my NS.
Mine are a tagged 31x32 and my waist measures 16.75 right now with 2 months since my last wash. No idea what they were brand new but I would guess about 16 is a safe bet.
