IHP might square most of that away

But the obvious answer is not to shoot wrinkled stuff:)

You might also be able to boost the shadows and then create a luminosity mask and then take a curves layer, click the hand icon, hold the dropper over the shadow and lift...

Don't know if that ^^^ will work because I have never tried it but it sounds good in my head lol it is the first things I would try if I was presented with the situation and had to fix it:)

Me personally I would think of some creative cropping to get as much of it out of the frame as possible. Most of the time it is at the bottom of the article of clothing that the wrinkles are the worst. So using some creative cropping could make the image more interesting and save you a ton of work:)

Aleks,

I think this may have some promise.

1.  Make a selection of the shirt.
2.  Copy to a new layer
3.  Make that layer a Smart Object
4.  Apply a Dust and Scratches filter.  I used 9 radius and 20 Threshold.  This may
     be different for your original file.
5.  Clip a Curves layer above the Smart Object layer and adjust contrast.

In addition to that on the same smart object, you can apply surface blur. For the posted image I tried radius 15 and threshold 25.

Can you make an image of light and dark gray stripes and use Illustrator's envelope warp to conform it to the right shape, then add shading to it in Photoshop -- completely replacing the photography?

I wish one of you guys would show how you do it with the healing brush. I tried it and got nothing but a mess. A little guidance, please?

Like this.

Plan your envelope curves in illustrator, then use them to warp a sheet of fake cloth.

I actually took the illustrator curves into Maya, but I believe there is an 'envelope warp' in illustrator you could use.

After that you'd have to brush in some d&b lighting. That takes a little painting skill, but it's not that bad.
