Simple Portrait Retouch (C&C Please)

I'm working on a senior portrait. I'm doing a number of shots but this one is specifically for the yearbook. I'm about 85% done (I think) with his face. I know the (camera) right eyelash needs some work as does the neck and body. I hate rushing but they came to me late and I only have a couple days to make the yearbook cut-off.

I could really use some feedback on my progress and what I should concentrate on to finish this image. My ego needs no boost, so please be as direct and critical necessary. I just want to improve and any feedback I get really helps me get better.

After (so far)
Before

Looking good so far what I see is maybe evening the skin tone on his chin. The eyes could use a bit more pop and possible smoothing some of the wrinkles in the shirt and burning the shadows a bit or removing the tag to make it less noticeable.

Thanks Julian! I appreciate the advice.

I did some work on the size/shape of the eyes and a tiny bit of D&B. Hopefully between some additional D&B and sharpening I can get them to pop more.

The tag is a stitched collar liner (or whatever it's called). I knew it would need some work when I took the photo
