    Easy. Give it to my wife then say, "Please don't let this shrink."

    If it 100% cotton, wash it, it should shrink a little bit.

    Wash and dry it in the dryer before you wear it. If still to big, yeah then gain some weight. Or wait until you grow into it. Trade with someone else for a smaller shirt. Wear a T-shirt under it. Is the style now anyway.

    Dry it for a long time or take it and have it altered at the cleaners.

    Wash in hot water then throw it in the dryer. You may not be able to control how much it shrinks though
