Any experience with Fjallraven Parkas or other high quality winter parkas NOT made by Canada Goose?

I'm looking to replace an old winter parka with a goose down filling and a real coyote fur hood. The coat was awesome but its 10 years old and its time to go. Unfortunately, the company that made it, Rainforest, completely went down in quality so that's not an option.

Is anyone familiar with some of the quality companies that make goose down parkas? I know Canada Goose is the popular one and very nice, but it's ridiculously expensive and even if I could afford it, I don't need the world to know that I spent $700 on a coat to wear around NYC.

Anyone have suggestions for a high quality functional winter parka at around $400-$500? Thanks!

My best parka and yes I know this thread is 4 plus years old, is the filson down parka, I purchase a few fjallraven ones and found them thick and heavy, their "all down" jackets made me look liked a michelin tire(yes very warm) but to puffy for my taste, the Filson is not to thick, extremely warm, very dried with a great wool liner on the hood and could also be worn for all types of different occasions, it retails for 750$ but they could be found on sale for 399$, I hope this helps someone looking for a nice winter coat.
