"Sunday bests"?

I have a student from Tryon, N.C., who claims that he and his neighbors
regularly say "wearing their Sunday bests" rather than "Sunday best."  I'm
also from N.C., though a different part, and I've never heard anyone
anywhere say this.  Does anyone know if this is an actual usage, or is the
student merely making an excuse for his bad proofreading?
