A compliment on garb is often not a good opening line with a newbie.  
Try as you might, it might come off as a little too much attention 
the first time out.  Besides, it can also come off as, "how 
interesting...for a beginner".  And other stuff.

Three dollar camp utensil set?  The mind boggles...what did it have 
in it?
