...That doesn't help me if I want to have a nice set off clothing from off duty + a set of 21st century clothing + a set of mercenary outfits.... Any chance they will modify these extra slot to allowed any type of clothing???
Yeah, it's silly the way they've divided the On/Off Duty costumes and we can only officially purchase On Duty Uniform Slots. You'll find threads all over that ask for this to be corrected. Cryptic thanks you for your purchase, none-the-less. You're welcome.

What I think Captbavo is referring to is a little bug/work-around Cryptic put into the game (accidentally or intentionally, I don't know). There is a way that some (most?) people (myself included) have been able to use the On Duty Uniform Slots for Off Duty clothing. I've outlined the steps here:
Be warned: There are people that have said these steps didn't work for them, and/or it locked out the slot in some unfortunate way. Also, once you save your Off Duty costume in the On Duty slot you will not be able to go back in and edit it, except to make it back into an On Duty uniform. Use at your own risk. Working with this knowledge, I've used this trick on all my characters with dozens of costumes and had no problems, but YMMV.
