I smell a strong scent of troll in this post.
Fuji XE-1 Body Sensor: 16 MP APS-C Includes Box, All Manuals, Charger, OEM Battery, Unused OEM Strap Generic 8GB SD Card Does not include XF18-55 lens at this price The camera is in good, but used condition. There are cosmetic blemishes to the camera, but nothing that affects performance. Add an expensive XC lens and you have a very competent camera for not a lot of $$$ Price: $209 -> $185 shipped from NYC.
Death of the Modern Tailor in NYC - As per Dailybeast I've never heard of this guy, though the article is a pleasant fluff read. Appointing him as "NYC Finest Tailor," is nice headline grabber. Discuss

It's not just the main zipper. It may also include additional hardware on the jacket (e.g. motorcycle styles). Sourcing better leather with a good grain, appropriate weight, and attractive dyes is costly. European/Western manufacturing demands a premium. The latter may not add much to the quality of the garment, but it makes a difference once products are marketed as "luxury" goods.
Even at a $150-450 pre-Brexit budget, you are working with a very limited budget for a leather jacket. Anything under $500 MSRP will likely be made in China with lower-end hardware. Your best bets are "high-street stores" like Zara, Banana Republic, Massimo Dutti, Scotch & Soda, etc. Higher quality leather jackets with improved design and East Asian manufacturing start around $1k USD. Examples would include Sandro, Theory, etc. If you are stateside, the best value...
