Embodying Harkila’s Spirit

With memorable acting roles in films like "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," Jones brings a unique blend of grit and charm to his brand ambassador role and, as a genuine fan of Harkila’s premium hunting and shooting apparel, Jones is always immaculately turned out in their latest season's country clothing. The collaboration is a natural extension of Jones’ own lifestyle and, with a true love of field sports and the countryside, his authentic personality resonates with outdoor enthusiasts of all backgrounds.

Harkila has a rich heritage dating back to 1985 and shares Vinnie Jones' passion for the outdoors. The brand is renowned for its commitment to excellence, producing high-performance hunting and shooting clothing designed to withstand the harshest of conditions.

Taking Harkila on Screen

Vinnie Jones has taken his Harkila brand ambassador role with him to his on-screen work. His recent TV series include the Discovery Plus channel’s "Vinnie Jones: In the Country” show which aired in 2023 and follows Jones as he renovates his West Sussex farm. Throughout the series, viewers will have noticed Jones sporting his favourite apparel from Harkila. Relying on the quality and performance of Harkila’s clothing as he tackles his ambitious building projects, the series explores Jones’ connection to the British countryside, and his happiness in the tranquillity of being surrounded by nature. Renowned for its durability, comfort, and adaptability to diverse weather conditions, Harkila’s clothing was the ideal companion for Jones in his countryside adventures.

Vinnie Jones’ latest acting role is in the Netflix series, ‘The Gentlemen’ and Harkila was again the perfect choice, bringing authenticity to Jones’ role as gamekeeper, Geoff Seacombe. Combining practicality with a classic country aesthetic, Harkila’s latest collection features in the show and undoubtedly adds rugged charm and heritage country style to Vinnie Jones’ gamekeeper character.

Showcasing Harkila at The Game Fair 2023

We were delighted to host Harkila and Vinnie Jones at the Philip Morris & Son stand at The Game Fair held at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire during July 2023. As a patron of the National Gamekeepers Organisation, Vinnie Jones is a keen proponent of the role of gamekeepers in countryside management and took part in the gun salute of the opening ceremony. Vinnie spent time on the Philip Morris & Son stand talking to and meeting attendees, plus signing autographs and obliging in selfies!
