Masterless Gear: Rogan Sample Sale
Thru Mon at 91 Franklin St, at Church
Up to 80% off sweaters, tees, and slacks from Ronan Gregory's almost-eponymous line ("Ronan" would've flooded the store with samurai incensed at not finding the latest in metal tennis skirts).

Dirty Gear: Slate NYC Holiday Special

Plus-Size Crotch Gear: James Jeans
Tue-Fri at 500 Greenwich St #202, near Canal

Charity Gear: Needs for Sale
Ongoing at NeedsForSale.com
The charitably focused offshoot of WantsForSale, Need's artists create paintings of necessary goods (kitchen sink, winter coat, can-o-beans, etc) and sell them at the cost of the physical object, with 100% of the proceeds going to non-profits. Plans for a painting called "Bottled Water" were scuttled when Nino cut the bottom out of the market.
