Practically and stylishly dressed men of Metafilter (and those who shop for them): how do you stay warm outside and cool inside in winter?

Autumn is coming and there is a chill in the air so I've started dressing a bit warmer and have encountered a problem which has dogged me every winter - how to dress so that I'm warm enough outside but cool enough when I go inside into the warmth.
The problem is above the waist. I generally wear a sort of vest/t-shirt thing tucked into my trousers to prevent draughts. Over that I'll have a jumper/pullover/hoodie. This is great for keeping me warm outside (in conjunction with jacket etc.) but when I go indoors where the heating is on I'm instantly too hot. I can't take the jumper off if I'm somewhere public because what I'm wearing underneath is basically underwear.
Fashion is not my strong suit so I'm hoping there is a really obvious solution to this problem which I haven't thought of yet.
(I have considered carrying a change of clothes around with me but that seems like a lot of hassle)
