These Are Our Failures by Christian Chensvold
A Sartorial Black Comedy by Christian Chenvold
On a quiet Sunday, a disillusioned luxury lifestyle reporter receives a message from an Internet troll holding the scoop of a lifetime. What follows is an adventure halfway around the world to discover the fate of masculine elegance. In a frozen, desolate spot on the map, our hero finds himself facing a puzzling question: does the vanishing necktie signal the collapse of Western Civilization? In These Are Our Failures, an outrageous black comedy that blends James Bond tailoring with James Bond adventure, Christian Chensvold singlehandedly invents the genre of Apocalyptic Menswear Fiction for a polarized age.
Alan Flusser on Christian Chensvold’s tale of sartorial apocalypse, exclusively at Hanger Project.
"A bit slapstick, frequently thought-provoking, its roller-coaster story kept my eye on what promised to be a most unpredictable denouement. Riddled with remorse for menswear-as-once-known’s imminent demise, the author takes us on a madcap ride to a kind of frozen tundra of his Christmas past, where two self-appointed conservators of all things tweed and traditional are holed up in an imaginary edifice brimming over with sartorial treasures both bygone and about to be.
