I just got a t-shirt thats more pricey than my usual tees (although it'd still be cheap by some of your guys' standards
), and just wondering how do you guys wash them to ensure they dont fade/deteriorate/shrink, etc? Thanks

I don't have any fancy expensive t-shirts (unless $50 qualifies), but for all of my shirts that I do want to keep in excellent shape (which is only one or two anyway), I wash them on cold then hang dry them.

Don't you know that you're not supposed to wash your t-shirts for at least 6 months before the first wash.

Wash inside out on warm or cold and tumble dry low or wrap in a towel to dry.

would hang-drying the tee stretch it out?

If you want to be super anal use the burrito method we suggest for good sweaters: Lay them in a towel while wet, shape them properly, then lay another towel over the top and roll the whole thing up (not technically like a burrito, I guess) and leave for a few hours or so. Then take it out and lay it out to air dry overnight if it's still damp.
