I definitely prefer soft jackets. But keep in mind that this is not only related to shoulders but also canvas used in the suit. The Giacca napoletana have a soft canvas in chest. I have jackets from Milano and Sicily, their canvas is different and has more shape. Shoulders are another story. During one of my fittings i tried with and without shoulder paddings and you really feel the difference.
