I think it depends on the material and how you dry them as well. I didn't have the same experience as the guy above with my Wang shirts. In fact, they're my favorite shirts I've ever owned and still retain their shape. I wash them cold on a light cycle and then air dry. For me, I find JE tees better for layering because they're slimmer and longer, but much prefer the loose drapey look of Wang when I'm wearing just a t-shirt out.
