In the title compound, C22H24O2S, the cyclo­hexyl ring adopts a chair conformation. The 4-methyl­phenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 81.60 (5)° with the mean plane [r.m.s. deviation = 0.004 (1) Å] of the benzofuran fragment. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and weak π–π inter­actions between the furan rings of adjacent mol­ecules [centroid–centroid distance = 3.545 (2) Å, inter­planar distance = 3.489 (2) Å and slippage = 0.628 (2) Å.
