stag

Here is my best explanation:

'party' is the definition.
(stag party is a kind of party)

'good man needing a good' is the subsidiary indication.
'good man' becomes 'st' (**).
'needing' says to put letters next to each other.
'a good' becomes 'ag' (I've seen this in other clues).
'st'+'ag'='stag'
