Not a suit, but a sportscoat: Brioni navy wool single breasted, 3/2, Augusto model, side vented jacket.  It receives more compliments than the rest of my jackets put together.  
What suit do you wear that attracts the most compliments?  Photos would help us appreciate the tailoring.
Thanks for the helpful tip Jcep -- I'll have to be careful about the alterations tailor that I use.  Both suits look great, and I love the lean fit of the navy MTM.
