    close fit


    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"?

    thank you

    Re: close fit

    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".
