    Default Austrailian men grow mustaches

    Can't you just say "mustach", the singlular form? Is the plural form because of "men" connected in advance?

    29)Every November, many Austrailian men grow mustaches. It is for Movember, a charity event...

    They have one each; they don't all share the same one.

    'Men grow moustaches.' (BE spelling)
