What's a Contango, you ask? It's a finance term that essentially means paying more for something now than you might in the future, because it's worth it to you. It's no surprise that the founder of the Contango brand cut his teeth in finance in the Big Apple.
Searching for a modern, American-made briefcase that was cool enough for the streets of New York but could carry everything he needed for business, he just couldn't find one. So he made his own using handsome American pull-up leather and cool linings. The first product from Contango is the Axton briefcase, a slim and modern business brief that's perfect for the warmer months when you don't need so much bulk.
