Cigars are sized by
- the length in inches (often indicated by the traditional name)
- the diameter, measured by a ring gauge calibrated in 64ths of an inch (that is, a ring gauge 32 cigar has a diameter of
32/64 = ½ inch)
- the shape, for which there are a number of traditional names such as Lonsdale, Toro, Churchill, and Robusto (also called Rothschild).
