    I'm getting some t-shirts hemmed as they're always too long. I googled quickly and standard seems to be halfway down the zipper or at about jeans pocket height. Is this correct?

    I guess it will be different depending on your own proportions. If this is standard, I'll probably eyeball it +/- 1 cm to what looks best.

    Also, I washed and dried them once. Should this be enough? Will they significantly shrink with repeated washings?

    Thanks.

    That sounds like a good length to me and it's about where I prefer mine. They shouldn't shrink much after additional washing but if you're worried about it, just hang dry them.
