The gusset is shorter and not as deep as the originals. I prefer the original gusset design myself.

The gusset on the Original G's is one piece and is shorter and narrower that the Vintage G's which is a three piece gusset. E.g., on the Medium 31" inseam, the Original's gusset is about 10" long from end to end (or 5" from crotch down) and about 3" deep/wide end to end. The gusset on the Vintage G's is 15" long and 4 3/4" wide. This results in the Vintage G's having more room in the crotch and upper legs.
