Kayabunga...I just soaked the jacket in a can of coke and water and washed it. It came out wrinkle free and softer except for the collar and cuffs. They are not as wrinkled as before, either. Thank you for the tip. I'll remember it for the next time

Try washing your jacket with a can of Coke on a small load setting (if you have a top loading washer). No soap, just pour in the Coke and use warm water ... it should make your fabric nice and soft. Nice job on your jacket!
