Student or Learner
I've got a question regarding a phrase I need to translate:
"The coat never closes, so more than ever, a close fit is key".
A close fit is a perfect fit?
"Is key" means "it's the way to go"?
I am not a teacher, but I think I know this one.
"close fit" does not mean perfect. It means tight, or perhaps "figure-near" in this context.
"key" does approximately mean "the way to go". It means "very important" or implicitly "the key to success".
