How to remove some creases in the sleeves of a blazer?

Going to use it this weekend and it has some lengthwise creases in the sleeves from storage I guess. It's a typical navy blazer (the jcrew legacy one), been used once and never to a dry-cleaner. Can I use my iron at home with a towell in between it and the blazer?

Lay it flat and steam with an iron, barely making contact with the fabric.

The sleeve needs an inner form before it can be properly pressed. A sleeve board would be ideal but a rolled towel inserted into the sleeve will suffice. And, always use a press cloth when ironing tailored garments to protect from the evil shine.

Tomasso's advice, is excellent, but some experience, is necessary. Sleeve boards are vital, to my pressing chores. As is, a pressing cloth. But pressing is a dynamic experience. No two garments press, the same way. You've got to have a deft touch, and patience. Experiment on something that you don't need . . . scunch up some stuff, and press, for experience. Before you know it, you'll be a pro.


I've pressed a LOT, of garments . . .

Thanks for the insight everyone. I've got an iron and a cheapish hand steamer from wallmart - I'll choose one of the two to remove the creases.
