I believe thats a bad idea. It is better to have a fresco weave from JJ Minnis or Smith Woolens for the Spring/Summer, and a good flannel or heavy wool worsted for Autumn/Winter.
It is good to have stuff specific for the season, rather than looking for 3 season fabrics. They are usually not cool enough for HK's summer, and too thin and breathable for HK's winter.
However, I must say that heavy fabrics have limited usage in Hong Kong, but it does not mean you don't need it.
