Maybe you may get enough palm leather to shrink to get your a little smaller but i doubt it would be all that dramatic a change.

With the dryer thing keep in mind if you have foam padding you may compromise or ruin it not to mention the nylon poly material over the foam padding. There isn't much leather in gloves these days.
Yes, I bought it online and I thought I learned my lesson when I bought shoulder pads online and didnt fit quite right. I didnt think I will have problem with gloves... I really learned it in hard way.
The TPS used good quality leather on their R8s and R10s on the palm area and there isnt any nylon poly material so maybe I will try the dry-machine method.

Thanks for the tip.
