    His clothes hanging on him

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes? Do I need "with" in my sentence. "with his clothes hanging."?

    I sat in a pub and saw Peter, his clothes hanging on him like on a scarecrow, come inside.

    Re: His clothes hanging on him

    I would put the 'come inside' directly after 'Peter'. It reads better without 'with' in my opinion.
