In the title molecule, C16H14N2OS2, the benzene ring and the benzo[d]thiazole mean plane form a dihedral angle of 75.5 (1)°. The acetamide group is twisted by 47.7 (1)° from the attached benzene ring. In the crystal, molecules related by translation along the a axis are linked into chains through N-HO hydrogen bonds.
