    Been watching the British political thriller/drama House of Cards (well the whole triology actually).

    Everyone wears french cuffs, and their cuffs protrude at least 3/4 of an inch from their jacket sleeves. I rather like the look.

    Any insight into who made the clothes? Given the socio economic status portrayed in the series, I'd imagine it would be someone on the Row.

    Don't have the answer, but have to add that this is perhaps one of the greatest miniseries of all time.

    You might think that...I couldn't possibly comment.

    One of the best TV series ever. Ian Richardson said that he based his portrayel on Shakespeare's Richard III.

    Does it have something to do with the Eastern Front?

    It actually reminded me somewhat of "I, Claudius".
