    Yeah, I picked one up, too. I ended up filing down the tip a bit more just to make sure it doesn't catch on anything. Only one of them fits me particularly well, but it's the one I like the best (thicker nail with a thin head). I still want to adjust it a little...it's a tiny bit big on my left middle finger but too small for my right middle finger. I'll post a fit pic at some point this weekend. [​IMG]

    you can shrink it up by squeezing it little by little on a table vice, if you have access to one. sizing these things has become difficult [​IMG] sorry for both of your large/smallness

    Ha ha, no worries, and no, do not has table vice. I think the issue is easily as much with my fingers; they're all drastically different sizes, and most of them are wider at the knuckle than at the base.

    It actually feels like I can move it just a tad by pressing it against something hard, so I may just do that a little at a time.

    On second thought you could probably tap it with a hammer while holding upright against a table

    Dude, I probably shouldn't even be responding to you, but is this really necessary? What's the real problem here....., actually the nail rings? For some reason, I think not. What does my drapey hoodie that I got got Christmas have to do with the nail rings? You're a real jerk, whodini.

    whodini has always criticized anything that might not seem "normal" to the mainstream person-- e.g. skinny jeans on guys, drapey goth ninja stuff (like your hoodie), etc. By bluntly stating his opinions he acts as the voice of conscience from the outside world. So try not to take it personally. I think your nail ring is cool, but what will the average person think but not dare say to your face?

    One wonders if in whodini's ideal world everyone would dress like a real man by sporting RRL jeans, a rugged plaid shirt, and occasionally a bow tie.

    Obviously, fucking fashion, why can't people dress more like manly men

    Vancouver riots are hilarious. London Drugs, Sears, Chapters. Who are the idiots choosing where to loot?

    Why does Mr. Porter sell J. Crew anyway? Isn't this like going to a nice restaurant and having a couple of random Denny's or IHOP entrees appear in the middle of the menu? Think about why a restaurant might choose to do this, then apply the same logic to Mr. Porter. It is not a pretty picture.

    Their on-line magazine confirms this purpose. It's like a comic book for status seekers who don't rank. Many references to England, world travel, staying in hotels with "culture", rugby, Porsche, Jaguar, etc. Yet no one who actually knows anything about any of these subjects would find the articles authentic or even vaguely interesting. Mr. J. Crew will enjoy this stuff. It is bland and inoffensive, the people being interviewed dress like him, and everyone appears to enjoy the finer things in life.

    What's wrong with variety? A guy can open the site looking for some J Crew/Converse priced stuff and see Balenciaga/Lanvin/Lobb right next to it. I think that a lot of people who buy at the J Crew price point would be interested in buying better if they knew what better was.

    I used to think that conversion to the darkside of SF was liking jet posts. Now I know that it's nodding along as you read a BB1 post.

    I actually figured out something better, since I kinda wanted to wear it on my right hand anyway (slack take notice): you can take a pair of needle-nose pliers, but them around the outside of the nose, and open them up while holding the ring in place to stretch it.

    I did this (gently) a few times to open it up in very small increments, and now I can wear it on my right middle finger.

    Because sometimes you just want a Grand Slam.

    I believe they also sell RL polos with the pony logo on the chest.

    On the face you're right but the reason is that until recently no one carried J Crew in the UK and it's been getting a lot of hype. Net-A-Porter were the the first stockists so it makes sense that Mr Porter would carry it too.

    No one on this side of the pond knows how rubbish J Crew is (yet).
