Miller filed the suit in federal court, stating Seattle-based department story chain infringed on Miller's trademarks by selling the shirts. The suit also names Brandlab, Inc., a Los Angeles clothing maker. "Mullet" is a term for a haircut that is short in the front and on top and long in the back.

Miller has sold beer under the "Miller High Life" brand for more than a century. Miller claims that the T-shirt designs are "nearly identical" to Miller's trademarks.

The suit asks that the shirts no longer be sold. It also requests unspecified damages.
