Dead Guy Robe
Are you gonna take off the dead-guy robe?
The "dead guy robe" is a dressing gown that Dean finds in the Men of Letters Bunker, which belonged to one of the Men of Letters before the organization was virtually wiped out by Abaddon in 1958. It is of a 1930's style and appears to be made of a fine grey woolen fabric.
The robe has the initial T.E.P. monogrammed in red on the left breast pocket. According to writer Ben Edlund, the initials stand for Tyrone Edmund Power. The real Tyrone Power was a movie star during Hollywood's Golden age, who had an adventure filled life. Power was openly (for the time) bisexual, which may indicate some progressiveness on part of the Men of Letters.

In 15.06 Golden Time, Dean wears the robe over his hot dog patterned pajama pants, when he emerges from his room where he has been marathoning Scooby-Doo and eating cereal. Later, while Sam is casting the spell to revive Eileen in the Bunker's bathroom, a rack with similar bathrobes are seen in the corner, presumably where Dean found the robe in the first place.
