“The simple metric that’s taking over big business,” is how Fortune last year described the Net Promoter Score (NPS).
NPS is based on asking customers how likely on a scale of one to 10 they are to recommend your company or product to a friend or colleague. Subtract the percentage who answer six or lower (“detractors”) from the percentage of those who respond nine or 10 («promoters»), and you get the NPS.
NPS, which ranges from -100 to 100, is valued for being a single number that conveys how well a company is serving its customers. It’s used by at least two-thirds of the Fortune 1000 companies and since its creation in the early 2000s by longtime Bain & Co. partner Fred Reichheld has been available for free for anyone.
Now Reichheld has a new book out next week called Winning on Purpose: The Unbeatable Strategy of Loving Customers, elaborating on how companies use and misuse NPS, which Reichheld now calls the Net Promoter System. Written with Darci Darnell and Maureen Burns of Bain, the book is also a manifesto for “customer capitalism.”
“There is one (and only one) purpose that generates long-term prosperity for a business and benefits all stakeholders,” Reichheld writes. “That purpose is to enrich the lives of customers.” (p. 15)
Reichheld links such an approach to the “Golden Rule” articulated in the bible and present in various forms in many religions: “love your neighbor as yourself.”
Reichheld is a critic of both “stakeholder capitalism” and “shareholder capitalism.” He argues that executives’ vows to serve all of a company’s stakeholders, including employees and communities where they operate, risk not providing enough focus to drive performance.
Reichheld also thinks businesses driven for shareholder profit inevitably maximize for short-term gains and thus decline over the longer-term. He cites the underperformance of companies profiled in Jim Collins’ Good to Great following that classic book’s publication, and shows how companies with high NPS scores outperform the companies Collins profiled and their peers in the stock market over time.
Winning on Purpose is something of a victory lap for Reichheld, who recounts stories from the many companies using NPS, discusses practices at Bain and other firms he’s affiliated with, and provides extensive anecdotal detail about his own experiences, good and bad, as a consumer.
It’s also a clearheaded argument for the benefits of focusing on customers, replete with specific examples from real-life companies—including Apple, Chick-fil-A, Costco, Discover, Peloton, T-Mobile, Vanguard, and Warby Parker—and specific tactical advice about best practices and mistakes to avoid. And, while arguing for a singular focus on customers, Reichheld also believes deeply in the importance of supporting and managing employees. “There is no way that a company can sustainably love its customers without creating inspired and committed teams who share that purpose,” he writes. (p. 69)
Throughout the book, Reichheld provides an outline for what he calls “Net Promoter 3.0,” an articulation of how businesses can best use NPS and adopt customer capitalism. The principal elements of Net Promoter 3.0 include:
- Making enriching customers’ lives an organization’s primary purpose, and building strategy and norms around that.
- Having leaders embrace the Golden Rule approach and fostering a culture that embraces a long game.
- Unleashing NPS feedback flows. Giving employees throughout an organization specific feedback from NPS relevant to their improvement on a timely basis and continuing to innovate to collect and curate the right feedback.
- Quantifying earned growth economics. Reichheld proposes a new metric called “earned growth rate” (EGR), which is the underlying revenue growth from existing customers coming back and referring their friends. He says that a strong EGR is a sign of a healthy customer-focused business.
- Continuously improving customer experiences, pursuing innovation and services to further delight them.
To be sure:
- Reichheld himself acknowledges that it takes a lot of effort for companies to properly use NPS and get its benefits.
- Winning on Purpose at times feels like it’s ascribing too much weight to corporate values statements and executives gushing about their customer focus, when they don’t always align with the realities within companies.
- The book is promotional for Bain, whose activities include a business collecting and selling NPS-score data.
- Reichheld’s families’ own consumer activity—including specifics about his car buying and Amazon shopping adventures—is described at some length, at times verging on the mundane.
- Other non-survey means of analyzing customer satisfaction and loyalty, such as machine learning analysis of consumer shopping patterns, could potentially reduce the relevance of NPS going forward.
Memorable anecdotes and facts:
- Intuit is seemingly the first company to regularly report the NPS for each of its businesses, benchmarked to competitors.
- Apple Store founder Ron Johnson told Reichheld that he was inspired by the Golden Rule, aiming to “design a store based on love.”
- Costco marks up most products 14% above its costs. That autopilot markup once led it to sell Calvin Klein jeans that it negotiated a great wholesale deal on for $22.99, when it had just previously sold out a batch at $29.99 and they were selling elsewhere for $59.99. Investors were upset that it didn’t price them at least at $29.99 and increase its profit, but Costco’s management defended the decision as being part of how it earned customers’ trust.
- Reichheld recounts how Bain’s founders “got distracted from the core mission of helping teams deliver great results for clients,” and took the company to the brink of bankruptcy in 1990, before Mitt Romney led a successful rescue effort.
- Former Discover CEO David Nelms decided to send customers an email alert the day before they would be hit with late fees, despite his CFO’s warning that late-fee revenue would decline by $200 million annually as a result.
- “There is only one way to grow a business profitably. You make sure your customers are treated so well that they come back for more and bring their friends.”—Andy Taylor, Enterprise Rent-A-Car (p. xv)
- “People work hard for a paycheck, they work harder for a good boss, and they work hardest for a meaningful purpose.”—Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision (p. 14)
- “Relying on profits as our gauge of greatness is often misleading, because profits quantify value extracted from customers and employees rather than value created for them.” (p. 28)
- “Persistence provides a foundation for building loyalty. You have to keep at it. You have to expend energy, constantly, to fight against counterproductive currents and temptations for short-term solutions.” (p. 167)
The bottom line is that Winning on Purpose is potentially valuable for the many companies who use NPS or others who’d like to understand the strategic framework for best implementing it. It’s also a clear and passionate argument for companies focusing singularly on making the lives of their customers better—a thought-provoking thesis as more businesses shift from a primary focus on serving shareholders to embracing the values of stakeholder capitalism.

The 15 Best Motorcycle Riding Jeans You Can Buy in 2021
Riding pants are almost certainly the most commonly-overlooked and under-utilized piece of protective motorcycle gear. And while it’s understandable that it feels a bit overkill to wear full leathers or knee-puck-equipped track pants while on the road, it’s still wildly important to shield your legs from impacts and abrasions should you happen to go shiny-side down. Jeans developed specifically for riding are quite possibly the best solution to this issue, affording ample fortification while looking and feeling like a regular pair of denim pants while off the bike.
Having now existed for several decades, there are well over 100 different moto-specific riding jeans to choose from, and while this gives buyers an enormous selection of different styles, cuts, colors, and constructions, it can also make it difficult to hone in on the handful of standout pairs that objectively represent the finest riding jeans on the market. And it’s this group of envelope-pushing pairs that we’ll be highlighting today in this guide to the best motorcycle riding jeans that you can buy.
What Exactly Are Single-Layer Riding Jeans?
For years, jeans made for motorcycle riding were comprised of either ultra-heavy-weight denim or regular denim that had key areas internally lined with panels made from abrasion-resistant materials like Kevlar. And while this configuration remained the status quo for a cool quarter of a century, the last few years have seen the introduction of what are called “single-layer riding jeans” which are made from just one layer of denim that’s been infused with advanced proprietary materials like Dyneema, Armalith, Kevlar, and COVEC. This setup not only affords single-layer riding jeans with phenomenal levels of abrasion resistance but also allows them to do so with minimal heat transfer.
The result of infusing denim with one of these advanced materials is it allows thess types of riding jeans to genuinely look and feel like regular jeans while concealing stellar levels of protection. This setup also provides better protection, as the entire pair is abrasion resistant, not just a few underlying areas, and is markedly more comfortable. What’s more, because they look and feel like normal jeans, single-layer riding jeans can be worn on or off the bike, giving the buyer more bang for their buck. Lastly, because the jeans are infused with expensive cutting-edge materials, they tend to cost more than traditional riding jeans. As a result, most companies that make single-layer riding jeans tend to outfit these pairs with high-end accents and top-shelf craftsmanship, making for an all-around more premium product.
Dressing For The Slide
The Four Main Factors To Consider When Buying Riding Jeans
From the outside looking in, it may at first appear that riding jeans are all more or less the same, though this couldn’t be further from the truth, as there’s a slew of finer points one should wrap their head around before making their purchase. Below, we’ll briefly unpack the four most crucial aspects to think about when buying riding jeans.
Style: Unsurprisingly, motorcycle jeans come in a plethora of different styles, all ranging in color (or dye), pattern, details, and/or accent stitching. If you’re fond of a particular style of regular jeans, there’s most likely a moto-counterpart that exists.
Construction: We’d almost always recommend going with a pair of single-layer riding jeans, though these pants can be made from a wide variety of materials, and it’s very much exploring what those are, especially when investing several hundred dollars into a pair of pants. It’s also worth mentioning that there are a couple of pairs of non-single-layer riding jeans that are worthy of your consideration when shopping in this space, especially if you’re looking to save a few bucks.
Armor: The use of highly abrasion-resistant constructions afford riding jeans with excellent slide protection, though these innovative infused denims still can’t do much when it comes to shielding their wearer from impacts. As such, quite a few pairs of today’s best riding jeans are equipped with armor — typically set at the hips and knees — or armor pockets to accommodate items that are sold separately.
Cut: Just like with any regular pair of jeans, riding denim is produced in an enormous variety of different cuts, ranging from loose-fitting to tapered and everything in-between. What’s more, it’s become increasingly commonplace to see riding jeans with light stretch properties.
Aerostich Protekt Jeans
In typical Aerostich fashion, the Minnesota-based manufacturer’s Protekt Jeans are produced in America in small batches and built to exceedingly high standards. Boasting a fit modeled after Levi’s 501s, these jeans sport a heavy-duty 14 oz denim fabric primary construction that’s further fortified via TF3 Impact armor (sold separately) and high-tenacity 500D nylon overlays strategically placed in key areas.
Construction: 14oz Denim W/ 500D Nylon Overlays

Non wash против One wash — Что это такое, и какие мне выбрать?
Мы, в Denimio , стремимся предоставить самый широкий выбор японского денима людям из всех уголков планеты. Вы можете выбрать японский деним из-за качества, ткани, производства, фасона и по многим другим причинам. Самое главное в мире «сырого» денима — знание того, что Вы покупаете.
Многие покупатели спрашивают нас, в чем разница между джинсами “non-wash” и “one-wash”? Ответ на этот вопрос может повлиять на Ваше решение при покупке прекрасной пары японского денима.
Технически, джинсы “one-wash” один раз прошли через промышленную стирку. Так как японские производители хотят облегчить для покупателей процесс выбора размера, многие из них предоставляют вариант “one-wash”. Джинсы “non-wash” доступны у множества брендов, производящих винтажную одежду.
Так в чем же разница между ними? Для начала, давайте разберемся с некоторыми джинсовыми тканями.
Для санфоризованного денима нет разницы между “one-wash” или “non-wash”, так как усаженный деним прошел через специальный процесс, который уменьшает способность ткани усаживаться во время стирки. Потенциал усаживания уменьшается от 5-10% до 1-2% максимум.
«Если Вам нравится, когда Ваши санфоризованные джинсы более «хрустящие» и более темного цвета, то лучше выберите “non-wash”.»
Санфоризованный деним One Wash — Momotaro Jeans 0202SP Indigo X Black 15.7OZ Selvedge Slim Fit Straight
Причина, по которой при выборе санфоризованного денима нет разницы между «one wash» и «non wash» в том, что потенциал усаживания ткани будет минимальным вне зависимости от того, какой из них будет выбран. Такие японские производители, как Japan Blue и Momotaro часто используют “one-wash” для большинства изделий.
Санфоризованный деним One Wash/Non Wash — Japan Blue JB0201 14.8oz Vintage Selvedge Skinny Jeans
Если Вам нравится, когда Ваши санфоризованные джинсы более «хрустящие» и более темного цвета, то лучше выберите “non-wash”. Если же хотите что-то более комфортное, то Вам подойдет “one-wash”.
Вот здесь очень важна разница между «one wash» и «non wash». Как Вы возможно знаете, несанфоризованный деним не проходит через процесс, уменьшающий потенциал усаживания. Это значит, что после первого замачивания джинсы Non-Washed сильно «сядут». Потенциал усаживания варьируется от 5% до 10%.
Мы, в Denimio, почти всегда советуем новым покупателям, которые еще не пробовали несанфоризованный деним, выбрать деним “one-wash», потому что так будет легче определиться с размером. Покупка несанфоризованных джинсов “non-wash” требует тщательного исследования перед их приобретением. Некоторые джинсы сильно «садятся», некоторые нужно 3-4 раза замочить в горячей воде, чтобы уменьшить потенциал усаживания. Другие же несанфоризованные джинсы не очень сильно усаживаются. Вариант “one-wash” позволит Вам обменять джинсы, если они Вам не подойдут. Многие места (включая Denimio) не принимают возвраты или обмены, если джинсы стирали или замачивали.
Несанфоризованный деним One Wash/Non Wash — EVISU EGD2000M2001 NO.2 DENIM #2000STRAIGHT FIT JEANS
Плюсы выбора несанфоризованного денима в варианте “one-wash”:
— Легче подобрать размер
— Легче осуществить обмен товара
— Нет необходимости делать дополнительные процедуры перед процессом развития потертостей
— Предотвращает ненужное усаживание после получения потертостей
«Когда дело доходит до несанфоризованного денима, “one-wash” облегчит Вашу жизнь.»
Часто бывает сложно определить, на сколько сильно «сядут» несанфоризованные джинсы “non-wash”. Они могут не подойти Вам после замачивания в горячей воде или же будут смотреться не так, как после первой примерки.
Когда дело доходит до несанфоризованного денима, “one-wash” облегчит Вашу жизнь. Вам не нужно будет ни о чем волноваться, не нужно будет замачивать перед ноской. А главное, Вы сможете купить джинсы онлайн, воспользовавшись таблицей размеров.
Некоторые денимхеды выбирают только «non wash», так как предпочитают «сырой» деним. Здесь есть несколько преимуществ:
— Джинсы сядут по фигуре
— Вы проведете ритуалы замачивания
— Проживите «сырую» жизнь, как @swissjeansfreak
Несанфоризованный деним One Wash/Non Wash — TCB JEANS 50’S
«Так как они не прошли через специальную обработку, джинсы будут более «хрустящие» из-за накрахмаленности ткани.»
Покупка несанфоризованного денима “non-wash” может стать приключением. Раньше люди по часу сидели в ванне, чтобы джинсы сели по фигуре. Как мы уже упомянули, несанфоризованный деним имеет потенциал усаживания до 5-10%. Это позволяет джинсам полностью адаптироваться к владельцу. Некоторые зоны, например, талия, растянется после носки.
Так как они не прошли через специальную обработку, джинсы будут более «хрустящие» из-за накрахмаленности ткани.
Ruedi Karrer — основатель музея джинсов с самыми сильными потертостями с 1973 года, более 13,000 джинсов и курток.
Некоторые денимхеды, например, Ruedi из джинсового музея, @swissjeansfreak, советуют носить на 100% «сырые» джинсы. Как Вы можете увидеть в его Instagram, его потертости потрясающие. Просто купите джинсы, носите их и никогда не стирайте. Вы готовы принять вызов?
Теперь, когда Вы знаете разницу, Вы готовы посмотреть нашу коллекцию наилучшего японского денима?
