    With his brown

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentence. I am wondering if my punctuation is correct.

    With his brown frayed fedora, thick glasses and grey shaggy beard, Peter came across as an old professor who had spent decades in the dusty libraries and musty lecture rooms.

    Re: With his brown

    I would remove "the" before "dusty". The rest is fine.

    Re: With his brown

    As a matter of personal preference (not correctness), I would use a comma after "glasses". That is called the Oxford comma and it is not used by everyone.
