Anonymous asked: "grey flannel pants that hung from his hips" - Yes, E.L., that's what pants do. There's no point in saying that unless you mean to bring attention to it, so perhaps there's a string around his waist and his pants are connected to the string, so it's a more literal sense of hanging from his hips. But why couldn't she just say that? And why is he wearing it? She might as well say "his hair grew from his head." "His skin rested on his flesh."
I think E.L. just meant to imply that Christian Grey doesn’t wear his pants up to his chest like a little old man. I like your idea better, though.
