    I have a beautiful shirt from a linen I picked out when I was in the shop, Fine Linen #80 blue/black (it has that shimmer similar to thai silk)
    It is more expensive than the standard cotton shirts.
    I think about US$98.
    I also liked Fine Linen #35 white

    They probably have 20 different linen variations in the swatch book.
    They also have some beautiful silk.

    The simple answer is Go visit the shop. They have a lot more than they bother to put on the Web site. And they prefer to work with you in person.
    stay in Hong Kong 3 days and you can take all your finished clothes home with you.

    US $98?? That is twice the price of his normal shirts. Seems very strange for a linen to cost that much.

    He made me a linen shirt about two years ago. It cost $65. The linen was of OK quality, however the cut is amazing. I bet if you just sent him some fabric, he'd do it. I ordered by mail as well.
