                $total_products = count($products);
                    $position = 0;
                    $list_view_html = "";
                    foreach($products as $product_id => $product) { 
                        $position = $position + 1;
                        if ($total_products - $position < 4) {
                            $list_view_html = get_list_view_html($product_id,$product) . $list_view_html;
                    echo $list_view_html;

Are you getting any error messages from the PHP server, or is the section just not rendering? If there are no errors, you'll want to make sure your server is configured to show them right on the page. (I know MAMP doesn't do this by default, at least) I would start there and report your errors.

The code you have should display the 4 shirts but in backward order with the last shirt first because you need the list_view_html before the get_list_view_html($product_id, $product) if it's displaying no shirts at all then it's a problem with your other php files
