What phrase is equivalent to saying that something is {just right/good enough?} for something?

Ex.: The shade of the tie was just right for the suit that he wore.
This type of sign pen is just right for use in signing on a check.

Would 'just right' work fine here? Are there any other phrases that can be used here?

Thanks in advance.

    Just right = fine, fully-functional, entirely satisfactory.

    Good enough = adequate, barely functional, just satisfactory.

    They are not synonymous.
