I have a lot of bad luck with t-shirts' necks stretching and distorting on the bottom (unevenness). I always take good care of them and do not stretch necks when putting on hangers. The only thing I can think of that is causing the damage is that I hang them immediately after taking out of washer, then let dry, then fluff in dryer.

I have had the most problems with Hanes that you pick up in packs at Walmart, etc. I have a couple pairs of Anvil that I like and haven't had problems with. I also have a couple Hanes Beefy-T's that I like but haven't had any problems with, but they aren't worn much since they're one size too large.

I am looking for recommendations for good quality (I realize this is relative) t-shirts that aren't too expensive (preferably under $7 each ).

American Apparel have small neck holes. Or go to an S&M shop and ask for Leather T-shirts. LOL!
Why don't you put on the hanger from the inside instead of jamming through the neck.
Maybe just fold your shirts.

Small neck holes are also important. I like the one on the Anvil and Beefy-T.

I am able to wiggle the hanger through the top without stretching the collar at all.

Any other recommendations?

Don't wipe your mouth on the inside of your shirts. As a kid I always stretched my tees this way. If you dry your shirts on high heat the may shrink back a bit. A higher quality shirt or maybe a 50/50 may do the trick. How about the Hanes Beefy Tee 5180 or PC61. Neck holes not as small but decent quality.

100% Cotton may not be as durable as synthetic blend but they do shrink a little more.
