A SUIT THAT FITS
It's certainly true that there's a universality to tailoring. No matter what your body type or height, by virtue of its very nature tailoring should be regarded as something which fits around your own specifications rather than the other way around.
The key to selecting the perfect suit is all in the cut, rather than the stylistic details. Therefore before tending to the lapels or button count, instead look to a classic, modern or slim-fit cut.
