# The usage of “ inside-out and outside-in ” [closed]

Do we have both the usages of inside-out and outside-in?

inside-out means: with the inner surface turned outward.

So basically they are the opposite meaning? Perform inside-out and then perform outside-in on an item A, then I suppose geometrically that we can turn A back to A itself?

And can we call this process of inside-out and outside-in as the $2\pi$=360 degree self-flipping?

Thanks.

• Outside in is not a common expression. It has been used sometimes paired with inside out, but I doubt that I have ever heard it on its own. – Colin Fine Apr 27 '14 at 20:34
