Vintage men's leopard print velour robe by Van Horn Costumes, which was established in Philadelphia in 1852. It has pockets, a tie at the waist, built in shoulder pads, and snaps on the front for closure. Our estimate is that this costume was from the 1950s, before Van Horn merged with the Brooks Costume Company in New York City.
