I've been living in Ireland for almost a year now and I start noticing they use the word "mens" a lot. I can see it used in:
- Shops, to denote the area where you can find men's clothes
- In sport, when they talk about "mens team".
My guess is just that they are lazy about the use of quotes, so that mens should actually be men's. However, there may be some rule I'm not aware of. So, is "mens" only limited to Irish English? When I'm allowed to use it?
