I like those too. (I like the AEs as well) Problem is OP ask for "similarly priced shoes". I bet those C&Js are almost double the price of AEs.
Comparing MSRP for MSRP (or sale-sale levels), I think you'll be hard pressed to find shoes from another maker. If you go into the realm of italian mid/high end shoes, you'll generally be paying a lot more and they'll generally be blake stiched. If you look for english shoes, which you should be able to find something very similar, you'll be hopping up several tiers in cost as well.
I'd take a look at Alden's website and see thier offerings, they will probably be nearest in price for similar (but better and pricier)shoes.
