Very well said. I recently picked up a Beaufort in my suit size as well, 44. I picked it up at the Milford, NH outlet so it was very well priced. In the past few weeks of wearing it, I've come to the exact same conclusion as you...but didn't want to admit it out loud . I do like it very much but as you said, it's not as perfect as I wanted it to be. With that said, you may very well be able to recoup your investment by re-selling it here or back at ebay. I've been considering that myself.
