Emailed to San Francisco: Common Projects After launching in '04 with a succinct offering of elegantly simple sneaks, each of CP's subsequent seasons has delicately fine-tuned materials and added similarly minimal new models, all while maintaining their trademarks: full Italian construction, including hand-sewing of super-luxe components, and a heel stamp of CP's only branding, a model/sizing # in gold, to complete the coveted fashion-forward cyborg look. Get something in Common with Thrillist
Emailed to Chicago: TrailObama "Dedicated to serving the American public a platter of President Obama's daily happenings", this fastidiously updated, bipartisan-run site features a six-category news aggregator, White House-released daily skeds, opinion blog posts, weekly-address YouTubes, and random facts like "Obama's favorite meal is wife Michelle's shrimp linguini" (so he won't be delivering any addresses from the Olive Garden).

Emailed to Philadelphia: Deckstools Straight out of Havertown, Deckstools are exactly what they sound like: broken decks and trucks fashionably converted into stools, allowing you to X-tremely sit on your ass like a man instead of falling on it like a pimply teen. Hit the Deck, fool!!
Emailed to Boston: Shipley & Halmos S&H was started by two original designers from Cali-cool casual menswear line Trovata, who moved East after realizing their Reverse Manifest Destiny lay in creating a modern, preppy "buttoned-up Northeast" aesthetic using several soft, ultra-wearable grades o' cotton for their habiliments. Thrillist can make you Halmos Famous
Emailed to Miami: Walk of Shame Developed by a former owner of SoBe's Automatic Slim's (origin of countless shameful walks), this Foster's oil can-sized kit is compact enough to stash bedside, and contains everything last night's lucky lady needs for a semi-dignified walk home, so thoughtful, it'll compensate for the fact that you were a selfish and brief lover. Run, don't walk, to the story
