It's not everyday you see someone on the golf course wearing a kilt. Or the supermarket. Or everywhere.
But James Ross has been rocking the 'tartan terror' every day for the past 20 months for his project, Kilt Life Crisis.
And it's all about destigmatising mental health.
The 41-year-old, from Albury in southern NSW, was clinically diagnosed with major depression disorder and anxiety and has had varying degrees of mental health issues since his youth.
His passion is music and he's been teaching it for years.
But the battles with mental health always held him back from performing.
"I always had a huge amount of anxiety," he offered.
"I'd perfomed in orchestras and big bands, but small ensembles and solo work was terrifying.
"When I started performing in the kilt, the anxiety went away. It was like I was standing on the shoulders of my ancestors, I have Scottish heritage, and I've now played in hundreds of gigs in kilts."
But it's not about the kilt.
"I don't think everyone's going to feel what I feel when I put on a kilt," he suggested.
"It's more so that I want to start conversations on reducing the stigma of mental health.
"It's been quite remarkable, I've had a lot of messages from people who will reach out.
"I've had messages from people who will tell me a part of their story, they obviously find it a safe space to share something and had messages of encouragement."

If there's a chance to raise awareness, James will do it.
He walked the Tour de France, jumping on a treadmill when the first stage started. It took 87 hours.
James's next challenge is on www.kiltlifecrisis.com.
"People also see the kilt and smile, it gives some people a lift seeing a random bloke in a kilt," he said.
A bit like the golf course.
"After we got the photos, I was having a hit anyway and it was terrible, with the rain and the hail," he explained.
