Listen, man - I like what you're doing, you've got your heart in the right place. But, frankly, at 15, dressing well (at least in the eyes of your peers) isn't difficult. Moreover, the kind of advice offered here isn't really suitable for someone in your 1) age range 2) budget 3) size. 15 isn't that far short of an adult, of course, but I think you're still a year or two off from really being able to take advantage of the advice a place like this can offer. My advice:...
Enjoy, but beware, those things are going to stretch like crazy. If they aren't really, really tight right now, they might not be the right size once they stretch out. Just for reference, I'm 6'1 with a 30 inch waist, and a 27 fits me really well, but it's definitely a different fit stretched than brand new. Looking over this thread, though, it looks like you'll be fine. Lots of good advice.
Hem or cuff. Stacking looks like total shit, in my opinion. Fortunately, I'm a 34 inseam, so I don't have to hassle with it too much.

I sling my bag over my right shoulder, though, so it hangs primarily over the left side of my ass, and would rub up against my wallet, getting the bag all stained and creating holes in the jean on one corner of the wallet. Now, I'm righty-righty. I occasionally shove my phone in my left pocket, though. Probably going to hop on a slimmer wallet here, soon. I have decided I really don't like the look of pocket fades. Edit: Jesus,...
I'm 6'1, 145-155 lbs, depending on the season (cardio or lifting, also known as Spring/Summer, Fall/Winter). As a lot of people in this thread have made apparent, there are really a lot of options, but you're generally going to have a hard time with mall brands (this extends beyond denim, into most everything; if you're skinny, and you want something that fits, expect to pay more). On a budget, the 511 is probably your best option; 514 has this ridiculous flare out at...
What is this "demim" you speak of?

When you put it like that, it makes more sense, but what goes through my head is "I'm spending almost half the price of this shirt...

I had a roommate from there. He wore a lot of fake designer clothing. There's probably places to find the real deal, though.
