I don't see anything wrong with the buttons as is (except the top sleeve one is poorly sewn.) As for it looking like an orphan, not so sure on that. A variety of stand-alone jackets are manufactured in the glen plaid pattern. The gorge is a bit low and dates it a hair, but you want a jeans jacket. Go for it.
If it were not for the obscenely obvious faux pic stitching, the texture would make it a passable sports coat.
Not sure where the good doc is coming from. The definition of pick stitching does not preclude it being done by machine.

A staple of the Trad look is the swelled seam, which is made by machine-running an outside line c. 3/8ths of an inch in from the edge all along the front of he jacket. Pick stitching does the same except it skips every other stitch. Don't recall anyone ever terming the machined swelled-seam stitch as being faux. Why now with the machined pick?
