In the crystal structure of the title molecule, C13H 11ClO3S, the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the 4-tolyl and 4-chlorophenyl rings is 64.95 (6)°. There are weak C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds which generate rings of motifs S(5), S(6), R2 1(9), A12(4), R21(6) and R22(8). The supramolecular aggregation is completed by the presence of C-H⋯Cl and C-H⋯π interactions.
