It's not that we'd generally encourage you to follow in the footsteps of Frank Underwood, House of Cards' Machiavellian White House manoeuvrer, but we can't begrudge you stopping to admire his footwear. And watch. And navy Burberry suiting. And the fearsome structural shifts and well-cut Tom Fords gathered around him. Here's your chance to get the coolly minimal House of Cards style, while boning up on all the manipulations, intrigues and usurpations of season two.

Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has brought on board stylists and personal shoppers A Good Man to help you dress like a total boss (however you define it). The men of A Good Man are James Gallichio and Julian Burak, who have been shopping for men's clothes every day for four years now. They know how to put together ensembles that are sleek and professional while incorporating modern, creative touches — and they know how to help others feel comfortable doing so. They can even explain layering with a gif. With the ethically dubious but sartorially excellent men of House of Cards as their starting point, they'll take the lucky winner of this competition on the shopping trip to end all shopping trips, no matter the budget.

Now is the time to revisit (or finally get acquainted with) Netflix's groundbreaking, David Fincher-directed, Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated series. The second season DVD comes in schmancy collectible packaging (from JB Hi-Fi and Sanity only) along with five bonus featurettes, including one exploring the differences between the original '90s British miniseries and the reinvented binge-watch hit of today. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright reprise their roles as the mercilessly ambitious Frank and Claire Underwood, with Frank ascending to the coveted vice-presidency. But hey, why stop there?

See more of A Good Man on their Facebook page. House of Cards season two is out on Blu-ray, DVD and DIGITAL with UltraViolet on June 19. Thanks to Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, we're giving one reader the chance to win House of Cards seasons one and two on DVD, plus a two-hour 'Quick Shop' styling session with A Good Man, who'll show you how to shop like a boss whether you're on a budget or keen to indulge your expensive tastes. Fifteen runners up will receive House of Cards season two on DVD.
