keeping the clothes on in hot weather is not a Torahnic mitzvah, it's just a custom. if he had taken off his coat, he would not have sinned.

False, though sin is a loaded term. He would have been violating a prohibition d'rabbanan, and possibly a torah prohibition depending on where he was.

ok, does a prohibition d'rabbanan mean that a Rabbi has prohibited that activity? if so, does it really have the weight of Halacha or Torah prohibition?

and what Torah prohibition might be in violation depending on where he was?
