This is a fantastic way to get disgusting sweat stains in your pits and onto your dress shirt. Honestly, an undershirt isn't going to make the difference between staying cool and burning up. Just wear one. It can be thin, it can be cotton, and it can serve as a barrier between your pits and your shirt (and your pits and the world, frankly).

ditch the jacket if it's not required.

White and blue seersucker suit, linen shirts, boater hat, no underwear.

I guess you have never been in a high-end retail store that requires its employees to use suits year-round, huh?

They would leave their home and drive to work and drive back. Or if it's in a city, they would take public transportation, which means exposing them to the heat for no more than 15 minutes presuming it's a reasonable distance away.

I'd do a vest with a lapel

Lived in hot places most of my life. Slacks and a button down shirt and no tie is common. My sport coat was always available, but rarely worn in the middle of the day. It's nice to have if you are going to dinner after work or something since it is cooler in the evening.

It's hot. There are two options:

 

1) Become uncomfortably warm, to the extent of unhealthy bodily function (115 and you're wearing a jacket is ludicrous, I don't care what anyone says, that you're even considering that is actually ridiculous)

 

2) Change so that you're compromised to a degree that doesn't overly upset you, but makes you more comfortable.

 

A vest in an appropriate fabric won't add much, but will allow you to still appear a lot more formal than others, even without a tie.

 

I live in a desert. Compromise or suffer, that's it. Suffering can be unhealthy, very unhealthy.
