Winter Coats for Analysts?

Now that its summer, some brands put up winter coats for sale. I am interested in purchasing a good coat that is somewhat formal for the office but could also be worn on the weekends to dinner without batting an eye. Open to any and all suggestions under $500.

Edit: I already have a few acteryx jackets ranging in thermal rating. I live in a city that has cold winters so this would be an everyday item for a good portion of the year.

if you are willing to search, some amazing, high quality overcoats can be found at high end vintage stores

Nice, thick navy wool overcoat. If you're lucky you can score decent discounts for some of the better known brands (now might be a good time to look). You can try vintage/second hand, but ymmv. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure there is a decent D2C brand out there that offers good overcoats.

would you consider moncler over doing it for analyst level or fine for the most part?

Agreed, not worth twice the price for the same quality. Moncler fits real weird IMO and most of their jackets are short.

is it okay to wear a moncler coming to work? do people wear only suit jacket or suit+jacket?

Check out Woolrich - sometimes they have good down jacket models that would fit nicely over your suit and are a blend of formal / casual that you are looking for. I had trouble with the Goose recently as they tend to leak lots of small feathers for many months following purchase.

Patagonia is a good option too.
