Mess Kid has made a name for himself for bringing the party with his get-up-and-dance sets, but as the Latvian-born producer and electronic musician knows, the songs are only the beginning of the story. The DJ consistently looks the part, too, dressed down in cool and comfortable classic-- regardless of whether he's spinning an event downtown or exploring the city. Check out his winter must-haves in the gallery below, and check back here tomorrow to see them all in action on NYLON TV.
