Which one should I use and please explain.
I am more inclined to "Men" but a native speaker told me to use "The men".

The is always specific. The men in this country drive fast. [specific to the place]
[as opposed to men in other countries]
Lack of the is a generality. Men in this country drive fast. [a general category]
[as opposed to women, who, for example, drive slowly]
Many times either can be used. It depends on context.
