I have yet to purchase my first pair of Aldens and am looking at a plain toe blucher. I first spotted them on J Crew's site which are priced pretty much the same as Aldens by Alden and also similarly priced Aldens for Peal. So is there a difference in quality? Are they basically the same shoes?

In this instance I would opt to deal directly with Alden. If only for return/quality control issues/refurbishment/the box.

FYI, Peals are not made by Alden. Peal is made in England for Brooks Brothers. Alden does make for BB, however.
