How Can I Stop Sweating So Much In My Suit?
I'm having a hard time keeping cool in suits. I tend to sweat heavily whenever I put on a suit, usually within an hour or so no matter what I'm doing. I don't have a polyester suit or anything, its 100% wool from calvin klien, and my shirts are all cotton from banana republic or brooks brothers. I also live in Toronto, so its not like its west coast or LV or anything. Worse, if I'm wearing a suit for 2 hours or so before a presentation and just sitting in the library, I tend to get hot and start sweating for no reason.
Any suggestions? I've started wearing undershirts and its been pretty helpful but it feels builky and uncomfortable sometimes. It really destroys my confidence, makes me uncomfortable and just plain smell bad.
edit: oh and deodorant has been pretty ineffective, and the smell is very informal. Are there any good no scent/professional smelling ones out there?

Could be an overactive thyroid if you sweat a lot in general. This could also kill you (makes your body run at a higher speed so it wears out), so get it checked out.
Perhaps try changing your diet - less fried or greasy foods and more veggies and fruits to deal with the odor.
You can buy deodorants such as the ones suggested on Amazon. See Certain Dri below.
