Consider a mohair or fresco weave suit with half/quarter bemberg lining. Should help considerably in the heat.

Undershirts, just simple cotton vests, can help too with the sweat problem. Whether it traps a layer of cooler air, or wicks the sweat away, or just makes you less nervous because the sweat won't show so badly so quickly who knows - but speaking as a gweilo who can soak a shirt in three minutes flat they're definitely worth trying. And yeah, no one wears a suit jacket outside in summer.

Undershirt + fresco = no sweat (well, not so much...)
Cotton and linen are fine for breezy Mediterranean summer days, but are not wearable in hot, humid Asian weather. They absorb water, whereas wool wicks water away. Open fresco type weaves provide air circulation.
