We [Rancourt Folks] don't commonly compare to AE, and I've never owned a pair. However, overwhelming consensus dictates that it is usually a safe decision to stick with your brannock size, especially with shell since it won't stretch like CXL. *AE did own Rancourt for a while, until they bought themselves back in the late 2000s. It is possible that they use common lasts for comparable models.
