Your country's most expensive magazine
Which is the most expensive fashion magazine in your country?!

Here in Brazil is Self Service, without no doubt, it costs 120 reais, about 75 dollars

$75.00 for a magazine!?! That's insane.

How can it be that expensive?

I'm not sure what the most expensive magazine is in Canada.

WOW! and I´m shock everytime I see V or W mags at $35 (around 100 pesos). Other mags like Vogue or Vanity Fair are $15 (around 50 pesos)
Fortunately there´s TFS and I don´t have to spend so much money on magazines!

The most I have ever paid was $20 for an issue of Ten...which is pretty much the upper edge. However I intend to get a copy of the June 07 Vogue Russia (for the cover mainly) and I'd pay up to $50 for it.

I live in the middle of nowhere, and the most exotic magazines Barnes & Noble ever gets are French Marie Claire, French Elle, Vogue Espana, British Elle, Vogue, and Harper's, and occasionally V. On average, these all run from $18.00-$20.00

I would never, ever spend more than that on a magazine. Heck, I don't even buy those magazines; I just look at them in store!

Air freight for SELF SERVICE is about $50 Australian here (In Oz, obviously)
I think I've seen Air frieght copies of GAP PRESS (men/women) for over $100.
The international Vogues (aside from Vogue Italia which is about $33 for Air freight) don't seem to be as expensive, comparatively. I think new issues of UK Vogue and US Vogue you can get for about $13-$15 and Vogue Paris is about $18 for Air Freight.

Vogue Italia at Borders averages around $16-21.
Vogue Paris averages around $15.

I treasure every issue that I buy to its pieces though.

Visionnaire is rather a book... and always EXPENSIVE (even for a book!!)

Here if we don't talk about the Fashion Shows Magazine....
I think this is Vogue Nippon.... 15€....

SelfService and Purple are normal prize as they are french.... 20€ and 15€... (but still expensive, imo for SelfService especially....)
Vogue US and Vogue Italia are like 6-7€...
Vogue UK is approx. 8€...
iD approx. 8€
Dazed is 9€
Pop and Another and V are like 10€

Honestly, I don't know how you guys can afford every month such expensive magazines.....
I mean in Brazil f*** the prizes are INSANE!
and it's not even how can you afford.... but more how can you spend so much money!!!!
