13/05/16 Does ‘FIT’ mean the same as ‘SUIT’?
These words do not mean exactly the same.
Fit refers to size and shape: if your clothes fit you, they are neither too big nor too small.
These shows don’t fit me – do you have a larger size?
Suit refers to style, color etc.
Red and black are colors that suit me very well.
Do you think this style suits me?
Suit can also be used to talk about whether arrangements and situations are convenient.
Tuesday morning would suit me very well for the meeting.
