    This morning at Filene's Basement, I bought a beautiful navy blue sport coat -- 42S; 100% Cashmere. The label inside the jacket just says Armani Collezioni. But the original store tag -- with a price of $2,595 -- says "Soft New Line."

    I couldn't find anything about this either at the Armani website or through Google.

    Any information will be appreciated.

    When they say "Line" they do not mean line as in Emporio, Collezioni, etc. They mean it has the design of the jacket. I assume its a very sport look. Which Filenes did you go to?

    Newton, Mass.

    I would describe the jacket as elegant rather than sporty. The shoulder has very little structure.

    Soft refers to the fit of the jacket. Armani does not make this model anymore. It was transitioned into a fit called "Giorgio". It's an older, looser fit than what's available from the Collezioni line these days.

    Yes, it's slightly looser fit but with minimal padding and lightweight construction. As said above it's from 2003-2005 i believe
