Mac obsessives may be in for a treat later this year, as the company moves to sell Apple-branded apparel through its retail stores.

A report on IFO AppleStore states that the company intends to: "clear out a tiny space in its retail stores to sell Apple logo merchandise before the holiday buying season begins."

The report speculates a wide range of clothing will be made available through its network.

Like any major brand or band, Apple is likely to enjoy healthy profit margins on such products, with eBay auctions of official company apparel reaching prices in excess of £20 for a T-shirt.
