I'm just asking in general if there is any sort of way to fix a stretched out collar on a regular t-shirt (not like undershirt, printed tee).

[Similarly I've been wondering if there is a way to shrink large collars, I have one or two shirts that have naturally large collars to them.]

Anyone?

Not that I know of, trying to shrink the shirt will deform it even more.

How does the collar stretch anyways?
When I buy shirts the collar fits nice & snug around the neck but after a wash it stretches out.
If the shirt usually shrinks in the washer, shouldn't the neckhole shrink too?

Nothing you can do to stop it. It happens, even expensive ass wood hangers won't do much but slow it down.

Your best bet is to just fold. Thats what ive been doing.

However, it also depends on the quality of the tee shirt.. some brands are thin and stretch easy.

Everything is purple.. my brain is fuckin purple
