Can someone with a keener eye than me tell how the newly listed trucker is different than the one currently on sale?

The new denim grizzly has a different lining than the one from a couple years ago.

I'd say mainly the pockets: placement and stitching on sale jacket. And also the buttons. The "new" version seems identical to the Type 2 sold a couple years ago. The wash is probably a tad different or at least a different name.

Speaking of wash, the new grizzly also just appears to be a lighter wash than the grizzly from Fall 2019.

With the changes in pocket shape (pointed bottoms, slant-corner flaps, no stitching) and button changes (silver), it's now about a direct repro of a 1950s Levi's Type II. Slide the pocket up halfway between the second and third buttons and it's there. Second pic is the real thing, a 1953 Type II.

Really love that jacket actually. They did a good job with that.

Also loving all of the corduroy. I'm a sucker for anything corduroy and that vest and hat are definitely on my list to get that Doug Bihlmaier Fall look.

LVC could be making repros that look like that, but they're too busy making circus clothing.

Been a while since I’ve posted. The summer months I’m not really into RRL.
Only purchased 4 things: sneakers, hat, linen over shirt, and pinstripe button up.

This fall collection looks fantastic. The cardigans, green chimayo vest and the overcoats look phenomenal.
