How should a professional young man dress for a job?

In my old job (a small creative outfit), I used to wear what is known as "sport-chic attire", which pretty much means a nice shirt and high-end jeans. It was all about having a shirt for every day of the week with 2 or 3 pants and 2 or 3 pairs of shoes. Now that I'm changing jobs, should I change my dress code as well?

How should a 27-year old guy dress for a job (corporate creative job in a big company)? Like any other guy in the world, I like expensive clothes but my budget doesn't allow for that much variety, and I'm not really digging the whole "wear a new suit everyday" because of its implications on my savings account. How can I strike a balance between making a good impression in that department (on a daily basis) and not going overboard financially? I'd like to change my clothes on a daily basis, but how can I give that impression without owning seven different pairs of dress pants? On a separate but related note: I lately gained a few pounds and I'm worrying it'll affect my image. Do you think a slightly overweight guy with an ever-receding hairline can still be well-dressed for the job? (If you do, it would be great to give some examples for self-esteem boosting).
