Moncler is nice, but not really that "technical" which I sort of assume is why you're in this thread, Crescent Down Works falls into this category as well--superior workmanship and materials but not really built in the technical style, and w/ many shell fabrics that are not ideal in conditions other than dry/cold (admittedly the apex of down's usage, but still...).
Nau is worth looking into. Arcteryx Veilance of course--this thread gives it a lot of love. I think Outlier makes a down vest, but maybe I'm mistaken on the fill; nice wool outer on that piece.
I'm leaving the outdoor "bigs" out since I assume you (all of us) can seek there accordingly (Patagonia, TNF, etc...)
