    Hmmm... This thread is pretty old but anyway, I've experienced the same problem with some of my husband's shirts as well. Very unsightly and annoying (no pun intended to original poster). and yes, it happens after just one wash. My husband is particular about his shirt dimensions so I've heard every detail about this problem. The solution we came up with is buying extra long shirts and cutting the shirt to proper length but adding an elastic clear tape to the raw edge of the fabric before sewing a coverstitch with my serger.
    Not sure that this might be your ideal solution since you can go buy the ones that do not stretch if you do not already own a serger.
