Winter Jacket over a suit

I'm shopping for a good winter jacket that I can wear over a suit. I have a lined overcoat now but I find best case with layering I can wear it to -10 and be outside. I'm looking for something to get me through the -20s with a bit of wind.

Can anyone recommend a good parka that would reach mid-thigh to cover a suit jacket? I prefer with a cleaner look to more mimic an overcoat like the CG Chateau Parka.

Hoping to price in around $300-$500 rather than $1000 CG. Suggestions on brands/styles welcome.

I have my CG Citadel parka for my suit when it's really cold. But I also have a Arcteryx Parsec (discontinued) that I can layer a puffy under.

So much for the $500 budget. I was hoping something like the McMurdo. Also seems popular on RFD thanks to decent pricing once in a while

Damn it, now I really want this.
Boxing day I believe you get 20% off at sportinglife and altitude sports. More discounts come after mid-january and on. Feb/march is when most stores give 40-50% off. So look for those. Also, TheLastHunt.com. They have sales throughout the year. Boxing day and after they start having huge 25-50% sales, sometimes more. Keep your eyes peeled there. Prolly the best online site in canada for discount high end outerwear and gear, accessories. I believe they are the outlet store for altitude sports. Free shipping over $100 across canada.

You probably want to check the site all the time... your size might sell out quickly.
