What do you like in the new collection?

There are some really nice tweeds, as well as cashmere and lambswool pieces. I've spotted loads that I want to get!

What are your personal style rules?

I tend to go for comfort and if it looks good then that’s a bonus. Definitely no flares though!

How do you rate England's chances at the World Cup?

It’s all about getting through the groups stage in tournament football. If England do that then they have a good a chance as anybody.



What will it mean to you personally if you're selected?

Everything. It would be a massive honor. Everyone wants to play for their country and it’s been a dream of mine since I watched Michael Owen score against Argentina during France '98.



Could you tell us your favorite film, what music you like and what you like to read?

My favorite film at the moment has to be Man on Fire, Drake is always on in my car and the last book I read was Vinnie Jones’ autobiography.



Who is your biggest hero in and out of sport?

In football it’s probably Zidane, he is a legend. Outside of sport it’s probably my Dad who always been a great inspiration to me.



If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?

Michael Jackson.



What would your last meal be?

Traditional fish and chips.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Work hard, simple as that!

Adam is modeling French Connection’s debit Pre-Fall ’14 collection, prices range from £20.00 - £350.00  available from the end of May onwards frenchconnection.com
