From a chemistry perspective, it’s hydrogen bonding. The cotton fibers that make up the Nicolas Sturniolo Mrans T-shirt and I love this threads of your clothes are made up of long-chain hydrocarbon molecules, which are electromagnetically attracted to each other due to their structure, loosely bonding to each other to form the solid, long fiber. The spinning process to turn these fibers in to yarn, coupled with the weaving process to turn that yarn to cloth, all happens under very high tension, which puts stress on these hydrogen bonds, causing some of them to shift and stretch the fiber. However, that’s not the equilibrium state of the molecules in the fiber; they want to return to the more relaxed state they were in when they were just ordinary cotton fluff, before spinning. But, they need some energy to break the new, stressed hydrogen bonds created under tension of spinning. Enter your washer and dryer, which have energy to spare in the form of heat, as well as agitating and tumbling actions to encourage the fibers to release the stressed bonds and return to their initial, relaxed state. Voila, shrinkage. Chitra’s answer mentions a few things that affect how much the fabric shrinks based on how the threads and fiber are constructed; a “high twist” basically means the threads are more helical, so when the fibers shrink, the entire yarn doesn’t shrink as much because the shrinkage is happening more around the yarn than along its length. Cover factor is at its simplest a measure of how tightly the yarns are woven; the tighter the weave, the less the fibers are allowed to shrink because the shrinkage puts tension on other threads that are also trying to shrink, and eventually the cloth reaches a steady state where the threads are still stretched out, but can’t shrink any more due to the natural tension remaining in the weave.
Dri fit clothes are meant for better moisture management. They are capable of absorbing the Nicolas Sturniolo Mrans T-shirt and I love this sweat from the body and transport it to the larger surface for quick drying. Shrinkage is a different property altogether and may have various reasons to be present or absent in any garment. Nike has strict quality control measures and would not allow any non-compliant garments. The shrinkage, in general, is more with the goods produced with natural fibres and less with synthetic ones. And Dri fit is made of polyester microfibre. So the chances of shrinkage in Nike Dri fit are remote. If you knit with wool from an animal like a sheep, goat, alpaca or rabbit, it will likely shrink unless you wash it carefully. Google how to wash whatever type of wool you have. Use a warm cloth with soap on it to scrub off sticky dirt. To get out rocks at the bottom, use a dirty toothbrush with soap applied.

Okay so first let me say I’ve lived my last 4 years with 2 shirts because I have a long torso and short legs even at 6’1. I’m 370 pounds (yep I’m a fatty) and this thing is like a dress on me. Absoultely amazed by how nice these are and for the price…I just wish i would have looked a while ago. The fabric is super soft and the stitching

I’m not sure of the value of yet another review w/1000+ reviews for these shirts. However, I’ll add my two cents… These are great if you want a v-neck that stays hidden (the shirt is relatively wide V at the neck) under a dress shirt with the top button(s) unbuttoned. These are great if you want a v-neck that stays tucked in to the pants
