- This set of clothes look very luxurious and noble on you. (What I mean by "this set of clothes" is a pair of pants, khakhis or jeans and a shirt or a T-shirt)

- Is this compliment natural enough? :)

Thanks a lot!

While some might understand what you mean by "set of clothes", it's a strange sounding collocation. how about "outfit"? Or you want to be more highfalutin', "ensemble".

Your outfit is rather stunning.

The whole "luxurious and noble" remark could seem a bit sarcastic.

Is this for a man or a woman? I think a man would prefer something simpler:
Those clothes look nice (on you).
You look nice (in those clothes).

Some clothes might have a luxurious appearance, but you cannot say this about a person who is wearing them.

A person might be (or look) noble, but not their clothes. Nobility can be either an inherited condition in a society that still has a traditional aristocracy; for those who enjoy high-flown but meaningless platitudes, the concept can be extended to include a person's character (e.g. 'nobility of spirit', 'nobility of soul').
