I dunno bout dat. Just the other day I was in the kitchen at the office and I overheard these two guys who talked like Thurston Howell III telling a story, one of them was describing someone he clearly had disdain for and ended the conversation with "He was a real looooser too, you know, the type who wears a nailheads suit."
Actually are we talking about birdseye here? Nail head is that irregular and very small rectangular pattern woven into the fabric whereas I think birdseye is that slightly larger round pattern. I often get it mixed up because so many others did when I was learning about it. Its like a word from childhood that you will always pronounce wrong because you read it for years before you ever heard it pronounced or a classic song thats ruined for you always bc you first heard it associated with some cheesy commercial or cartoon.
