I am wondering whether a competent tailor would be able to add a second, and if so, how substantial I might expect to be his fee.
Just be forewarned that working buttonholes means (in 99% of cases) that any adjustments to the sleeve length has to be done from the shoulder, which is not inexpensive. As well, anything above a $300 jacket will normally utilize a 'floating chest piece', since every jacket on earth (other than the rare unlined) utilizes some sort of 'canvas', where that canvas is glued or stitched.

This. TM Lewin is cheaper, has a bigger cloth / pattern selection and utilizes non-fused cuffs / collar.
