What are good recommendations for semi-formal to formal winter coats?

I work in a law firm. I wear a shirt and tie and suit pants every day except fridays where I dress business casual, but conservatively. Sometimes I need to wear a suit jacket if I am going to court.
I have never bought a real coat and I am looking for options. I know that coats can run the gammut in terms of price, but I am looking to realistically spend between $200-$500.
I feel like full-length overcoats would be cumbersome, but car coats and short coats seem to not work well with a suit. I also want a nice, warm coat, but not one that is so flashy as to draw attention to myself. I think double-breasted coats are odd, but you could talk me out of it.
