I can’t actually afford to use Typecast, but I love their service and I adore their emails.
Their latest email is no exception; lovely design, beautiful web fonts and the content is excellent.
I really like the amount of whitespace that is used across the design. The vertical rhythm is spot-on.
They have used a lovely webfont called Enzo Web Pro Bold.
They have used the @font-face method in its own <style> tag. All the other styles are within another style tag. This might have been an attempt at bug resolution with webfonts— as you probably know, this can be very tricky.

font-family: EnzoWebPro-Bold, 'Helvetica Neue', Calibri, Arial, sans-serif;
Unfortunately, this method does not work in Outlook and it displays as Times New Roman. I did a quick test to confirm (bearing in mind that perhaps their subscriber list is devoid of Outlook and also that I ran a test using the code in the Litmus Scope version which may not be perfectly accurate).
I’m in the process of collating a huge batch of methods for incorporating webfonts because none of the methods for doing this seem absolutely bulletproof to me. I will share the results when I have them.
