 Bonjour Jonathan,

Thank you for your question! I noticed you wrote 'cet costume'. It should be ce costume' because ‘costume’ starts with a consonnant and not a vowel or mute h.

Cet appartement =this flat

Ce manteau this coat

 

Coming back to your actual question...

‘Convenir à’ is more used in a context such as appropriate for’ 

Ce costume vous convient pour votre travail = this suit is appropriate for your work

Ce costume me convient pour mes cours de gymnastique = this suit is appropriate for my gym lesson

 

Aller à’ is used in a context such as to fit/suit along with a pleasing feeling.

Ce costume vous va bien = this suit fits you well (and is pleasing to look at on you)

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
