In the title compound, C16H22N2OS2, the S atom of the thiadiazole ring and the attached methyl groups are disordered over two orientations with a refined site-occupancy ratio of 0.641 (11):0.359 (11). The thiadiazole ring is in a twist conformation in both disorder components. The mean plane through the thiadiazole ring makes dihedral angles of 77.39 (8) (major component) and 67.45 (11)° (minor component) with the benzene ring. Intramolecular C—H⋯N interactions generate two S(6) ring motifs. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into zigzag chains parallel to the b axis.
