Doesn't look like bubbling in this picture. Looks like the inside pocket was folded in weird way or something wasn't flat in the lining and made an impression in the cloth when pressed. What has been tried to rectify the impression?
OTC, where do you find this brand in Chicago?  Have seen them at Quality Meats but only individual sized packages, not larger bags. Can get them in Dallas but don't where to get them in Chicago
Caused by the collar being too short and makes the lapel roll past the button. Collar needs to be longer. May not be possible to do, or there may be another solution if you find a creative tailor 
Can't be specific from a picture, guessing you may need up to 3/4".   You can pin the excess cloth in a < shape. 0 at the point of the shoulder and pin across to the neck in graduated increments. This will give you a visual confirmation of the change. You can also press in the change with an iron and then cover the wedge shape with a piece of tape to hold it. Put the tape on the underside of the cloth.
you need a square shoulder adjustment to clean up the wrinkle
[[SPOILER]] Chest is to small. I explained this and added a photo of a proper sized chest a page or two back from here.Trouser has the wrong balance and creates all the wrinkles on the back part and you have a high right hip which is larger than the left hip causing a distortion in how the trouser leg hangs
This is caused by steaming before you wear the trouser.   Wool fiber is hollow and absorbs moisture from the steam. The fibers relax and expand releasing the wrinkles. The wool fibers are the most unstable at this point. If you steam and then wear the trouser it will cause more wrinkles than normal and as the fibers release the moisture and dry, the wrinkles are set in. The result is the trouser looks worse than before. You want a minimum of overnight to one day to let...
Those are darts. They are used to create shape in the chest and to reduce the fronts at the waist. The canvass also has these shapes to follow the shape of your chest and waist.   At the top end of the dart fullness is created by the dart. To make it look smoother it only needs to be pressed but do not try to press it flat. If you press it flat you are working against the purpose it is meant for. The chest area should be pressed in a curved shape to follow the rounded...
It needs to be pressed properly. A tailor will be your best option over a dry cleaner. The problem is caused by using steam alone without applying pressure and heat to dry the cloth. Can't emphasize it enough, not to steam jackets
A light cream color, like the color of the door in the picture.   Grey may make the overall look , look muddy
