Yes, it has leather collar and pocket flap. I saw it at a RRL shop and was disappointed. Too lightweight denim and too distressed for my taste.  (...and for 490 USD I wouldn't touch it anyways.)
Too much Denim - too little time...

^ Agreed.  $490 is very high for a denim jacket.  At that price it needs to be perfect to even be considered.  The good news is this is RRL, so if you wait until F/W 2018 is released this will probably be on sale.

At the end of the day you are still paying for the Ralph Lauren name, so yeah... what Matt said. ^^^

I wish they would save themselves a little production cost by NOT "distressing" stuff.
Maybe then the prices could be a little lower, and we could decide for ourselves re the level of relicing.

Interstingly, they discuss their "new" process for Indigo Dyed Leather. I wonder, do they mean the leather will fade like denim??

Yes. 
That's possible.
Oak Street has a pair of Trench Boots made with leather that has been indigo dyed by Bandanna Almanac/Jonathan.

Hmmm - fascinating.

I've worn leather jackets for years - usually some shade of brown - I'm more used to hide darkening with age. Not sure I want the stuff to fade!

There was also an A-2 by Buzz Rickson in Indigo.
That came out like two years ago.
There should be some fade pics from some wearers, possibly from Japan.

Here's my A2.

This is how I like my leather to age.

(getting off topic - my apologies)

Sure, brown always ages nicely.

Beautiful jacket.
Which maker is it from?
