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.and there is a large group of observant Jews generally known as 'modern orthodox' who keep kosher, keep the Sabbath, and are generally as observant as those who dress in ancient east European garb.True enough, but there's no indication the person was dressed in old world clothes.but they dress more modernly, many do not wear payot or have beards, and the women genrally do not wear wigs. so, there is still an orthodox path for you!It is not a requirement to have a beard. Many do have peyot they're just not as long or openly displayed as you would see. And as far as hair covering, you may have a point, but this is more a lack of following one of the mitzvot than the mitzvah not applying. Everyone will ultimately find their comfort level.-silencer-silencer
