Brooks Brothers shirts vulnerable to sweat/deodorant?

First time poster, hope it's in the right arena.


I've got some brooks brothers button downs (the normal slim fit shirts) and a few of them (have had them for about a year or two) are all but ruined with giant sweat or deodorant stains around the armpit.

It only seems to be the brooks shirts this is happening too. I've got other button downs from regular department stores, and they're not staining in the same way.


Anyone have any advice on how to remove the stains, or prevent them in the first place? I picked up some other BB shirts, and swapped deodorant to one that claims to prevent staining, but we'll see. I guess I could goto the undershirt look, but never really cared for it.

Was tempted to try swapping shirts to something like charles tyrwhitt and see if they did any better, but maybe overthinking it.

The stains are usually caused by antiperspirant not deodorant (the difference being one keeps you dry while the other just covers up odors). The non-staining one might work, but a product labelled as deodorant only should do the job as well.
