There are two different accounts of the origins of the phrase “Suits me to a T.” The more common one involves a draftsman’s T-square instrument, which perfectly measures stuff, or something; but the other involves “tittle,” which basically means a tiny detail. “To a tittle” was in use nearly 100 years before “to a T,” and because it involves a now-archaic word, I’m all for it! Tittle it is!
