Tristan Shields – Candidate for Virginia’s Delegate District 18


Graduating with a BA degree in Theater from the College of Charleston, I did a stint as a professional stage actor in Memphis, TN where I honed my singing voice on Beale Street.  Returning to Virginia, I founded the Shields Brothers, a rock harmony singing duo with my younger brother, Rory.  We started playing locally in the Charlottesville, Warrenton and Culpeper areas, eventually getting selected by Ceelo Green as Finalists on NBC’s the Voice, Season 2. From there we raised funds on Kickstarter from our fans to produce music and videos. Spending time in Los Angeles on a variety of acting and music projects, we ended up singing backup for 80s Poison star, Bret Michaels. Along the way, we built a significant YouTube and podcasting presence, garnering over 1.2 million views and 150,000 downloads on our Who Stole What podcast.

My Virginia roots go deep. I can trace my lineage back to Richmond 1838. Presently, I live on my family’s (small) horse farm in Rixeyville, Virginia.

    Yogi^I normally wear a Large in button up shirts (XL in t-shirts and polos)&#44 and this Large fit just like any other Large button up. I ordered the dark charcoal and royal blue short-sleeved industrial shirt&#44 and the color is as described&#44 but is much darker than the almost silver shown in the picture. I figured black would be too hot for summer days&#44 but this shirt is nearly black. It had a strong chemical smell when it arrived&#44 so I hand washed it and it was dry and most of the stink was gone by morning. I really do like this Honduras made shirt and it looks great with jeans. I think you would be hard pressed to find a retro looking shirt like this with chest pockets&#44 including a handy pen pocket. In this style a critical part is the bottom button has to be low enough&#44 so when the wind blows your gut isn’t showing&#44 this button is low enough to protect everyone’s eyes. I will put it through a normal washer/dryer cycle to see how it comes out&#44 but I am pretty sure I will order a couple more. It is a real bargain.~5|Signal Scout^Seems to be of the same reasonable quality level as other Dickies work shirts I own. Pretty cool looking. Fit across the gut is significantly tighter than my other products of the same brand and size. Choose carefully.~3|Sean^I bought this shirt and was satisfied with the loosness of how it fit. The colors are great for cordinating with my DG shoes. I love how it has two front pockets that button.Resonable price. Fast delivery and perfect packaing job.This shirt material seems very itchy at times. I do not know if after I wash it that some of the starch may wash out so that it not as itchy or stiff.I do like the shirt alot and will return or order from this company in the near future for myself again.Although the price could have been more reasonable perhaps 10 dollars cheaper.Discounts on these shirts would attract many more custumers.Great service. I’m pretty happy wearing it around.~5|Stacey^For some reason&#44 these shirts are a whole size smaller than other Dickies work shirts. Buy a size bigger than what you wear.~3|Joseph G. Wood^well worth the money&#44 great shipping&#44~5|Richard Hatcher^great fast service and the product is very good~5|Amazon Customer^Great quality&#44 nice color combos.~5|Eric Collins^As described&#44 fast shipping.~5|777twist^The rating system says Hate it&#44 I don’t like it&#44 It’s Okay&#44 I like it&#44 I love it.So in terms of that&#44 I will just go with “It’s Okay.” It’s probably more my fault that I didn’t see the polyester %&#44 as this shirt is like wearing a burlap sack. It’s not soft at all. It really is a work shirt.So if you want something that will be more durable and hold up to rips while you work under your car… this is the shirt for you. But it’s just not my kind of thing.~3|txgingersnaps^So glad I ordered these! Durable and great fit.~5|

    Pierce W.^HORRIBLE QUALITY&#44 DO NOT BUY.The shirt is not cotton&#44 it’s that weird spandex material&#44 and the image on the shirt is very low quality. I will be returning this asap~3|Daniel M^This shirt is decent! That being said&#44 the sizing is kind of funky. I am normally a large. This large however fits massively&#44 and the medium is way too small. I wish there was a size in between for such an awesome shirt. If you do manage to get a size that fits you correctly you’ll be guaranteed a lovely&#44 high quality and durable shirt. I get comments from fellow fans whenever I wear it out.~5|Amazon Customer^Ordered an XX-Large shirt for my father. Received the shirt&#44 the tag says XX-Large&#44 but it is clearly a child’s size shirt. Barely fits my 100 lb.&#44 14 year old. Extremely disappointed!~3|Jaime Le Francois^I had to ask for a refund for this shirt (which was granted.) I ordered a medium size for my husband&#44 but the shirt arrived and it was too small to even fit my 10 year old son. It looked like it was actually meant for children&#44 but even a medium would not fit the average child. Perhaps a toddler.~4|Ashley Martin^Loved it! wash it all the time and has not faded nor has the screen print cracked.~5|Amazon Customer^description said cotton&#44 some cheap spandex instead. image was as pictured though. SLOW shipping from china~4|Brooks Armstrong^I love this shirt! All of my friends who watch trailer park boys want to kill me and take the shirt.This shirt has powers… Be careful who you wear it around&#44 other fans will be jealous~5|TheCrazyCanuck^This shirt will get you some weird looks but after they read the caption below Bubbles they have a good chuckle.~5|BadgerU^Was airdropped by a Helicocksucker&#44 I am very pleased with the fit&#44 as are my cats.~5|Texrra^It’s a decent shirt&#44 it’s very soft. The only bad thing about it is that after one wash the logo faded about 75%. Even with gentle cycle on cold and air dried.~3|

    RVartist^I bought this for my husband so he had a summer Viet Nam Veteran’s hat. Judging by how many times I see it on his head&#44 it is a big hit. It adjusts to fit how yow want and the embroidered patch on the front is very attractive.~5|Myrna Cheek^He really likes the hat. It fits well and looks nice. Different from the usual black caps that so many wear. They are good but this is more ‘him’. Thanks~5|Honey Bee^My husband really likes the fit of the cap. He is looking forward to wearing it. It is well made!~5|Marissa Rice^Bought as a present for my dad. He has a black one and a camo one&#44 this just added to his collection. I like the mesh back for the hot summers&#44 and the light color. Very true to picture.~5|No No Nanette^This is the perfect summer hat for my husband. He loves it!~5|BB.Oregon^Very Nice Hat for the money~5|wam71^nice summer hat doesn’t get hot like the black ones do.~5|R. L.^comfortable~4|Great Phone^A. o.k but not the best would i would have preferred the brim to be of stiffer quality and the front emblem area also.~4|James O^Good fit sharp hat~5|
