  Finical \Fin"i*cal\, a. [From Fine, a.]
     Affectedly fine; overnice; unduly particular; fastidious.
     "Finical taste." --Wordsworth.
     [1913 Webster]
  
           The gross style consists in giving no detail, the
           finical in giving nothing else.          --Hazlitt.
  
     Syn: Finical, Spruce, Foppish.
  
     Usage: These words are applied to persons who are studiously
            desirous to cultivate finery of appearance. One who is
            spruce is elaborately nice in dress; one who is
            finical shows his affectation in language and manner
            as well as in dress; one who is foppish distinguishes
            himself by going to the extreme of the fashion in the
            cut of his clothes, by the tawdriness of his
            ornaments, and by the ostentation of his manner. "A
            finical gentleman clips his words and screws his body
            into as small a compass as possible, to give himself
            the air of a delicate person; a spruce gentleman
            strives not to have a fold wrong in his frill or
            cravat, nor a hair of his head to lie amiss; a foppish
            gentleman seeks . . . to render himself distinguished
            for finery." --Crabb. -- Fin"i*cal*ly, adv. --
            Fin"i*cal*ness, n.
            [1913 Webster]

Din dicționarul WordNet (r) 2.0 :

       adj : exacting especially about details; "a finicky eater"; "fussy
             about clothes"; "very particular about how her food was
             prepared" [syn: finicky, fussy, particular]
