Papillionaire City Bikes - Anyone?

Heard of em? Can't find zip online about them but they're offering free shipping to the US right now so they have my attention.

Also considering...

Never heard of them before.

Along the same vein as the links you posted, check out Giant Via, and the Globe (by Specialized) Daily line.

yep saw those globes, thanks for the recommendation but for some reason I'm not a fan of their look. Any other ideas appreciated!

Most bike branding is just paint..

other than the name what parts are you wanting on a City bike.. ?

It is a dutch step thru 3 speed you seek? Trek makes one too, a well known brand ..

My must haves:
Loop frame
At least three speeds
Frame small enough for me at 5 ft
English or Dutch vintage aesthetic

Wishing for:
racks in frame color
On the lighter side
Leather seat
Under $600
Cherry red
