Coming soon on Queer Eye: a whole lot of Yeezys.
Last week, Netflix announced that the hit Queer Eye reboot would officially be coming back for a third season. Considering the way the show has infiltrated popular culture with its fuzzy, feel-good undertones (nabbing a handful of Emmy nominations along the way), the announcement didn’t come as a total surprise. But nonetheless, it was still extremely good news for casual and diehard watchers alike.
While many fans wonder exactly what the forthcoming episodes might entail (spoiler alert: deep heartfelt chats, middle-aged men trying on skinny jeans, and B-roll of Antoni’s dreamy eyes), it looks like season three will feature at least one thing that previous episodes didn’t: hyped-up menswear.
A quick scroll through Instagram reveals that the Queer Eye crew just started filming for the upcoming season. Tan France, the show’s resident fashion expert and noted lover of the French Tuck, can be seen draped in head-to-toe Yeezy, an outfit we’ll describe as “UPS Driver but Make It Fashion.” And it should come as no shock that he nails it. Between the combo of gray socks and dusty suede boots, his perfect short length and statement eyewear, it’s easy to see why he’s the show’s style guru.
To double Queer Eye’s dosage of hyped footwear, Antoni Porowski (the always stylish food-and-wine guy) followed Tan’s lead, rocking the exact same Yeezy desert boot. He opted to switch things up by wearing a David Bowie shirt instead of an all-Yeezy fit, though. But the most hyped-up footwear award probably has to go to the firecracker of positivity that is Jonathan Van Ness, who looks to be rocking a pair of Vetements sock runners. The kicks could also be the heeled-boot version, which he has also been known to wear. Either way, one thing is crystal clear: The Queer Eye guys have upgraded their own personal closets.
Since the reboot first premiered, the entire cast has gone from everyday dudes to beloved celebrities—presumably with the bank accounts and famous-person perks to match. If you’ve been following any of the cast online, you might have noticed a steady stream of designer clothing and fancy products appears to have trickled into their lives. The sudden showy upgrade might not work for most reality-TV stars, but the Queer Eye crew wears it well: They’re still the same guys you know and love, just with nicer clothes. We’re looking forward to more heartwarming makeovers, but we’ll also be keeping our eyes peeled for the jawnz the Fab Five will be wearing this season—and hoping that Antoni wears his cross-body bag in an episode.
