    Did you try the exact same ring on at both places? If the ring you buy is thicker than the ones he tried, go for the 11, if it was thinner, go for the 10.5. 

    Usually guy’s hands will get a bit  bigger, and due to swelling in the heat, the larger size will likely be mroe comfortable in the hotter months.

    Band widths make a big difference as well, as do comfort and regular fit.

    I think get the larger size to be on the safe side and get it resized if it’s too big.

    I say go for the 11.  It is cooler now (In NY, at least – I’m not sure where you are), and it is good to have a bit of leeway for summer swelling.

    What is the temperature like where you are? If it is cool out, then go the 11 since in the summer his fingers will swell.

    I would go with the smaller size. Speaking from experience (my fingers have changed size due to weight gain and loss), it’s much easier (and cheaper) to get a ring sized up rather than sized down. I would order the 10.5 and then have it sized up should he find it too tight.
