Between sizes... alterations?

A store nearby is having a huge sale on suits. But they are carrying even sizes only.
Now, I would usually wear a 39R, but I can rock a 40R. But this 40R somehow seems a little too roomy. And the 38 is definitely too small.

Is it possible to get the 40R reduced? Just a smidgen, maybe, but I've read that shoulder/chest alterations ruin a suit....
Or should I just bite the bullet and pass on this opportunity?
