In the crystal structure of the title molecule, C13H 10Cl2O3S, the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the 4-tolyl and 2,4-dichlorophenyl rings is 43.92 (4)°. There are weak C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, which generate rings of motifs S(5), S(6), R12(4), R21(6) and R 22(8). The supramolecular aggregation is completed by the presence of C-H⋯Cl, C-H⋯-π and π⋯π interactions.
