I already tried putting it in the dryer while the t shirt was wet and cooling it under high heat but the tee shirt doesnt seem to shrink.
Help and tips would be very helpful.
What Do i Do?

Hot wash with 1/4 cup white wine vinegar to preserve color.

Then high heat in the dryer.

Full cycles I mind you. Not no 5 minutes.


Does that apply to hoodies as well?

In Streetwear that isn't always the option. Maybe my man is a size Small like myself and can only find shit in Medium.

wow a size small...that is really tiny...im a Large..with a little shrinkage it fits perfect....no more meduims for me...they shrink up like crazy...so if u a small get a medium like you said if thats the only thing u can find then wash n dryer...it may not shrink of the first drying but after 2 or 3 washes it will shrink down more noticably

hot water wash + dryer tends to do the trick. but if its black then it'll fade.
