Oh, Instagram. A bottomless well of inspiration. The categories are multiple, their respective players are all better than the next. Are you getting an Insta-headache from all the options of beautiful accounts at your fingertips? Hit the refresh button with the must-follow feeds I've identified.

The pleasure is all yours (and maybe a tad mine, too).

We've all been sucked in by the Instagram vortex. I happen to do it as my job, therefore the hours I spend on the daily scrolling through the photo-sharing app are completely justified. But for those of you whose livelihood does not depend on your Instagram savviness, it can be a real counter-productive wormhole. The struggle is indeed real.

Start humming hallelujah, because here I am again to save you some precious clock ticks with my aptly named 'Who to Follow on Instagram' series. A look into who to follow for inspiration from the best UK brands to the best men's style influencers. The category explored for this installment: almighty denim.

Denim brands have an unfair advantage - everybody loves jeans. But it's so much more complex than it appears. How does a denim brand position itself to stand out in the Instagram marketing landscape? What makes a label's content better than the other? Most of the time, these answers reside in the intangible: it's all about the feelings induced by visual storytelling.

If you still haven't found the top jeans brands that do it for you, we got down and not-so-dirty to suss out the jeans companies that are crushing it on Instagram. It's amazing how a well-crafted narrative can prove to be the most paramount point of differentiation.

What will come between you and one of the labels below? Nothing, hopefully. Let's get to it!
