If you watch the video carefully,you can pick up the link that Linus mentionned,as he said he's lazy to do it the REAL HARDCORE way,but as he mentionned there's a thread where you can find a lot of instructions about cable sleeving and you can even debate on that if the forum is actually still active :)

1/8" is too big. It will look sloppy. 1/16" if you are going w/ a sleeving that has a 3x3 weave.

He did say he is using slightly larger sleeve, which means that Linus likely used 1/4" sleeve. Doesn't look big enough in the video to be 3/8" or 1/2" sleeve.

I am just guessing by what is available in most of the kit packages available. Haven't lloked too much at sleeving yet, but it is something I want to do in the future.
