I've tried again - two versions. I hope slightly better than the previous one, but the jacket is still a problem!

Oh wow! That is really wonderful! Thank you very much, David. I did not think it could ever look that good. I think nothing more can be done with the jacket but make it black. Did you use any special filters on it?

To remove the repetitive pattern I used G'MIC Fourier transform.
I followed this with Anisotropic smoothing. I separated the figure from the background with G'MIC Extract foreground, although I used the separated image to make a selection of the figure which I could then shrink by one pixel and feather by five pixels. This was to create a good transition between foreground and background.
The face was smoothed by Wavelet decompose, selecting areas, feathering by five pixels and then Gaussian blur of varying degrees in each of the decomposed layers (as per the Pat David tutorial). Then duplicated layers one and two for the whole face and neck to sharpen. Background - obvious! and a poor attempt to improve the clothes.
Second thoughts - possibly painting over the jacket with a suitable colour on a layer in Overlay mode might improve things?

I hope this is not too boring and of some help to you!

That is really very nice David. How do you pain overlays?

For each overlay, create a new transparent layer, in overlay mode, select a suitable colour with the eye dropper (either from the same or another image), and paint the areas you wish to colour. It is useful to switch the layer occasionally to normal mode to make sure you have not missed anywhere. When painted you can apply all the usual controls to the layer.

I have also done more work to the face - particularly around the eyes, the nose and the mouth.
It has been an enjoyable challenge. I leave you to finish the eyebrows, perhaps by cloning (by stages) from a suitable sample of the hair. Also, the transition from the hair line to the face needs some careful work, probably with the cloning and healing brushes.

It is amazing what you have done with this photo. I tried painting with a layer and the mode multiply. That is how I made the jacket darker, How were you able to keep the stripes in the suit and make them brighter?
