In the title molecule, C17H14N2OS, the mean plane of the acetamide group forms dihedral angles of 75.79 (5), 81.85 (6) and 12.32 (5)° with the two phenyl rings and the thiazole ring, respectively. In the crystal, N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds link pairs of molecules into inversion dimers with R22(8) ring motifs. The crystal packing is further stabilized by C—H⋯π interactions and by π–π interactions with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.6977 (5) Å.
