“As we approach COVID-19 vaccination eligibility for the majority of Americans, heading to bars with friends is right around the corner,” Sofia Colucci, the vice president of marketing for Miller Family of Brands said in a statement. “We know this is an important and historic moment for so many and with the release of the Vax Time Tee, we’re one step closer to enjoying Miller Time in person.”

 

According to the announcement, all proceeds from the t-shirts will go to the U.S. Bartenders Guild. Miller Lite also promises that it will match donations up to $50,000 for every shirt sold.

However, Miller Lite isn’t the first company to sell clothing with exposed arms. 

Fashion brand Revolve was criticized in March for creating a section on its website for “vaccine-ready” tops, with off-the-shoulder styles selling for between $70 and $300, the New York Post reported.

The page was titled “Shoulders out for the vaccine” and included brands such as Alice + Olivia, Free People and Norma Kamali.
