There's been a lot of confusion about the recent "updated release" of older style coach bags so I've attached a couple of screenshots that might be helpful (click on the images below to enlarge.) The first image shows a snapshot from the "Coach Originals" page currrently on coach.com. These are near identical to the older versions of the same style bags. They are still made of glove-tanned leather or jacquard fabric, but the materials used may not be quite as thick and heavy as they were when these bags were first released. The second image is a snapshot from the new "Coach Classics" page on coach.com. These are updated versions of some of the older style bags. They are made of a lighter-weight leather with a shinier surface, and with lighter-weight hardware. There have been some color changes and style modifications as well. For instance, the Stewardess bag now has an slip pocket on the back and the dimensions of the bag are slightly different. Vintage just refers to older style Coach bags that were made at least 20 years ago. Sometimes the term is loosely used to describe any older style bag, or it may be called "near-vintage" if the bag is less than 20 years old. These bags are often available used/new on eBay and bonz, or used at thrift stores. They often have very thick leather and are favorite projects for "Coach Rehabbers" like me! Hope this helps!
