How do you get wrinkles out of new leather jacket ?

I received a new jacket and it was really wrinkled in shipping. I saved a bundle of cash by using a warm steam iron over brown paper (store bag). I'll remember to take some paper along on my travels, since most hotels have steam irons handy. Thanks for the suggestion. (04/15/2008)

I stuffed my leather jacket with pillows then run a home steamer that I bought to save money and time in dry-cleaning. The thing looks almost new, I had stored it for the winter and it was all rumpled. So if you have a steamer use it directly on the leather it won't burn it. (10/25/2008)

I am looking for a way to remove wrinkles from a leather coat. Any suggestions will be most welcome.
Here's some useful info from a leather coat site:
"A wrinkled garment can be hung in the bathroom while you shower. If the wrinkles don't steam out by themselves, gently iron the garment at a warm setting after layering clean brown paper between the iron and the leather. Store your leather garment in a well-ventilated area and cover with a cloth to keep it dust free. Avoid storing your leather garment in plastic. Leather is porous and it needs to "breathe"."
