problems with shoulders and quarters of preowned jackets

I recently purchased a preowned burberry blazer. The problem is that the shoulders have been altered before and have a creased appearance to them, and that the quarters of the jacket are very open, resulting in the bottom of my shirt peaking out. I am wondering whether a tailor can realter my jacket so that the shoulders are smooth and the quarters do not open to such a large extent.

Thanks.

Do the shoulders look different? Its possible they were trying to go for some sort of like... faux spalla look.

I don't know if a tailor can change the quarters. I should think that would be difficult.

Would it be possible to remove the faux spalla look? This is a very british looking jacket.

The jacket has been altered with the effect that the quarters of the jacket open up too much. Would letting out the waist close the quarters a bit?

Wish I could help you. These are tailor questions. Changing the shoulders i don't think is likely a good idea. Are the shoulders different from each other?

It's not worth it. Sell it, return it, chuck it. Move on.
