Nuance "suit his purpose"

Posted by Miri Barak on November 08, 2004

Hello to you all

I would like to know the exact meaning of the expression suit his purpose in this context:

"To help the client find the right binoculars, telescope or barometer, the optician will show a selection that suits the client's purpose."

I want to be sure that this is not "to satisfy him" which is more common in my language than suit the purpose.

Thank you very much
