Definately Self Service, it costs about €30.

I wish I lived in France.... magazines are so much cheaper. (Apart from the British ones)

here in the czech republic i dont have much to choose from... the range of mags depends on the inpour of foreign tourists... so now its a spring of russian magazines... plus you can get them only in big cities, so i must travel the half country to get mags

...which are cruelly overpriced... us vogue for 265 CZK (ca11 EUR), vogue paris and vogue italia (thank god its so sh***y now, so i save some money) for about 320 CZK (ca13 EUR), vogue russia for 300 CZK (ca12 EUR), i-D for 330 (ca14 EUR) CZK and vogue hommes international for 365 CZK (ca15 EUR)

such mags as pop, v, w, selfservice, another, purple or dazed and numéro and others are forbidden here

the most expensive are naturally vogue paris collections and collezioni, the latter for around 1600 CZK, if i remember well (ca 65 EUR)

I think the magazines in the US that are the most expensive are the ones that come from overseas. The most an US magazine would cost is like $12 tops, I think.

I think...self service was once 32 euros but it's now like 28 euros. The only place that sells W etc is the only one to import them in the whole country so they can pretty much decide what they want to charge. Nothing outrageous yet, thank god. W is 5,90 euros which makes me happy..

The most I've ever paid for a magazine was $7.00 including tax. And I complain about that. Although I have thought about starting to buy French Vogue since my work sells it and I can keep a copy on hold (evil laugh).

i always thaought about working in barnes & noble to get free magazines that didn't sell but then i found out that someone comes in to take them away so they don't give away magazines that don't sell. sucks

the most i ever paid for a magazine was over 30 for paris vogue and italian vogue magazines i bought on ebay. i really need to stop it. which i have for now until i get the the crazy eyes again for another issue i must have.

is this thread specifically asking about magazines that originate from our country? because, of course, all imported magazines are gonna be expensive, since it costs a fair bit of money to acquire them...

anyways, the most expensive australian fashion magazine i've bought was summerwinter and it was $15... not sure if there are any others that cost more than that.

I thought my magazine store was expensive, but after reading this thread, I can say that the prices where I live are the same as most other places.
