Fit Advice: Spier & MacKay Navy Blazer

Hello! I'd love some advice on the fit of my new Spier & MacKay Navy Hopsack blazer in a 40R Slim. This is my first purchase from SM, so I could return or exchange for free. I actually purchased it using the referral code of a generous Styleforum member.

From the photos, it's clear the sleeves are too long, the body is a bit long, and the back is bunching too much. My right shoulder is bunching even though the left fits well.

My main questions are: (1) could a tailor could fix these issues? (2) Would it be worthwhile to size down to a 38R in Contemporary? (3) Should I just return it and buy a navy blazer elsewhere? For context, I live in New York City and was hoping to spend ~ $300 for something to wear Labor Day weekend.

Thanks in advance!

Think you're probably better off posting this in the S&M thread. The back of my suit jacket was a bit messy like that too, and I think it was cleaned up decently well after a trip to the alterationist.

I don't know if I would size down to a 38R. The shoulders do look big viewed from the back though. The length of the body seems OK to me.It would be an easy alteration to get the sleeves shortened.
