vintage. Is it invariant ?

The adjective, vintage, does not agree with its plural noun, vêtements.   Is it invariant and is this so because it is a word borrowed from English ?   If so, is this the case with other borrowed adjectives, for example super?  Thanks for the informative story about Lille.

Hi Frank,

Yes, the adjective 'vintage' borrowed from English is indeed 'invariable' and this is also the case for 'super', 'fun', ' cool' etc...

It also has an entry in the French dictionary -

Glad you enjoyed the exercise and bonne continuation !
