In Chapter 6, Jem loses his pants when he is trying to run away from the Radley house as Mr. Radley is shooting at Jem, Scout, and Dill. When the children return home, Atticus asks Jem about his pants and Dill tells Atticus that he won Jem's pants in a game of strip poker. Jem then explains that they were not playing with cards, they were playing with matches.
