Hm, I’m not sure. I’ve never heard of a different system. 

I will say, though, that my fingers look really stubby and I’m a small ring size. They look stubby more because of how short they are than anything else, so it might look like some people should wear a larger size? Knuckle size has a lot to do with it as well.

I don’t think it’s a big deal either way. One size isn’t “better.”

I think they are standardized in the US.  Maybe these people are from other countries?

EDIT: I found this on Wikipedia.  Hope it helps!

I think that the UK has different sizes than the US and Canada. I know their shoe and apparel sizes are different than ours.

I think the US has one standard size but other countries definitely have different sizing systems.  I have very slender fingers and I wear a 4.  I don’t think I’ve every even seen 3.5.  Maybe they were talking about sizing from other countries.

In the UK they have sizes in as letters not numbers… e.g I’m a ‘K’ in the UK, which is a 5.5 in the US.

I think it’s very hard to tell from a photograph what size peoples fingers are… some people might have small fingers that don’t look small in a photo because of the proportions
