 The only Mahfouz novel I've read is "Children of the Alley", which I enjoyed. I think that existentialist themes are explored in all of Mahfouz's novels. A bit of literary trivia - the person who translated quite a few of Mahfouz's novels from Arabic to English is Peter Theroux, the brother of novelist and travel writer Paul Theroux.
  Looks good to me - I don't think that pea coats should be too tight, especially as you might want to wear a jumper underneath for extra warmth when you're out on the bridge of your ship. Also, the fit of the shoulders looks pretty spot-on with the large, so I don't think that the shoulders would fit you if you went down a size.
